Tech groups in Danang and HCMC?

Hi all,

I'm a programmer in the process of moving to Vietnam. I'd like to get involved in the local programming scene, but it's been hard to work out what local scene there is - anyone know of any programmer meetups/barcamps/whatever around Danang? (Or HCMC, but I'd prefer not to have to fly just to talk shop :)



Thanks Tomo - moving over with my girlfriend, HCMC is a bit too noisy for her :) I'll have to see if I can make it to the big smoke occasionally.


In Saigon, there are a number of developer groups from the biweekly Javascript meetup, Ruby meetup, Google stuff, upcoming TechCamp Saigon, BarCamps, occasionally BeerCamps. The reason is that there are a lot of expat developers in HCMC who like to get involved and organize these things. There are far fewer expats in Danang, and far fewer expat programmers there, and far fewer things going on. My friend Tom did organize a Drupal meetup/conference in Danang once but I'm not aware of much that's ongoing.
