Flash Indianapolis - February Meeting

Flash Indianapolis is Officially starting up. Please check out the info below in regards to the first meeting and group overview:
---------------------------------------------------
Flash Indianapolis is a Flash Platform Users group intended for Flash users of all levels and interests.  Everyone in the Flash community is encouraged to attend: from designers to developers, students to experts, game enthusiasts to application developers.  We hope to span the entire Flash Platform, giving members a place to explore new areas of Flash as well as bring together talent w/ different specialties.  By doing so, we hope to bring together the Flash community in the Central Indiana area and provide a unique place to learn, network, and have fun.

The ultimate goal is to have the community run and direct the group.  We would like to see the meetings cover topics chosen by the group and be held in venues all across the Central Indiana area.   With that said, we plan on using the Ning platform to keep everyone up to date and involved.  To get the discussion started, please join our free social network:
http://flashindianapolis.ning.com/
We plan on having our meetings on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6pm.  The venue will change depending on the speaker and topic.  We would like this to be a traveling group so that it is truly owned by the entire community.

The first official meeting will be February 19th at The Basement Design & Motion's studio (address below). Our first speaker will be Mark Grossnickle (http://blog.ickydime.com), Lead Flash Developer at The Basement.  He will be talking about the development of the Surf The Crowds flash game (http://www.surfthecrowds.com/).  We will then open the floor and discuss what everyone would like to get out of this user's group and what direction it should take.

Address:
The Basement Design and Motion
8902 Otis Avenue
Suite 107B
Indianapolis, IN 46216

You guys should also connect up with IN2Flash (www.in2flash.com), another Flash User Group in the area.

Thanks Rachel. I had seen that site before, but it looked dated/dead. I guess they switched to "IMERG" group full of Photoshop/Flash/ColdFusion/Dreamweaver... Maybe a few will be interested in a strictly Flash group as well. Thanks for the heads up.
