User Group Recap, Links, and Parting Shots

Thanks everyone for coming out this month to Flash Indianapolis. Great turnout!

Building Flash Indianapolis with you guys has been a blast this past year an a half. I am going to miss the meeting of the minds followed by the great conversations and nachos each month. However, I do plan on staying a member so I can keep in touch via e-mail, forums, and the like. So please keep in touch and stay active on the boards. I look forward to seeing where everyone takes Flash Indianapolis under Todd's guidance. Best of luck to you all. Keep in touch by following me here!

As promised, I have a bunch of links to post from the presentation:

@Markus, pretty slick. Maybe if I teach again I will go that route.

I should mention your portfolio as well... nicely done custom Flash site, easy to navigate and has some cool 'wow' features: http://markushofmann.com/

Just stumbled on your site, and it's great! Thanks for putting so much info out there.

Also - the header on your resume's second page still has your IN address. Just fyi!
