New London Flash User Group…sort of
The group meets once a month, normally around the middle of the month. They have a fantastic set up: meeting rooms, over head projectors and several networked labs at their disposal. The group can and will be running workshops along side presentations so you’ll be able to get your hands dirty with real code and design and take them home to play with after. There are prizes to: Apress/ Friends of Ed have kindly agreed to give us books on Flash platform technologies to give away on the night.
The beginner and intermediate community is huge and poorly catered for. This Meetup group group addresses that gap. If you want to learn or improve your Flash-craft then go check out the group. Sign up, and come along.

Inagural Flex London User Group meeting
We were at the Flex London User Group relaunch on Wednesday night, organised by Mike Jones and Andrew Martin. It was held in the LBi building in Brick Lane. A great venue, fully equipped for this kind of meeting. It was hard to tell exactly how many people were there (I’d guess between 40 and 50) as the room was big and people were spread out, but it was more about the calibre of people than the numbers. There were many industry expert faces I recognised there as well as many I see at PokerCoder.
Wild, dirty speculation on a potential Flash future.
Has anyone else noticed the discussion that’s taking place in the small, Redbull and coffee induced, corner of the web?
It’s set our minds a’cogging as to which features, or steps, we’d like to see implemented by Adobe in Flash and their other flagship products in the Creative Suite.
Flash and Flex Developer Magazine – now FREE
Finally, a magazine for the intermediate and advanced developer, and now it’s free! Well ok, actually the back issues are starting to be released free as the next issue comes out. But that’s pretty good!
