Preamble I cut my teeth in the Melbourne .NET scene through the mid-2000’s and if you were doing that you knew who Readify were. They were the Microsoft developers. If you had a problem they’d know how to fix it. If you were at a Microsoft User Group, they were running it and presenting the content. If you went to a Microsoft conference, they were giving the talks. My goal was always to join them, but I didn’t know when or how, I was just an unknown dev writing some ASP.
