Announcing July Meetup #2
Wednesday, July 21, 2010 6:30 PM
Howson Branch Library
2500 Exposition Blvd
Austin, TX 78703
Hey gang, thanks for coming out to our joint meetup with the Flash group last week. Normally we skip a week between meetings, but this Wednesday is the third of the month, when we always have our meeting at Howson Branch Library.
This time I'll be doing the "Free Software" rundown that I tried to do last month. I'm planning on showing and/or demonstrating a bunch of different options for free/open-source image editing and design software. There are three many already know about: GIMP, the Photoshop alternative; Inkscape for vector graphics; and Scribus to do desktop publishing. We'll also look at a few of the web-based photo editing services out there such as Piknik, Pixer, Phoenix and Photoshop.com (they all start with 'P'?), as well as Wix.com, which lets you build simple Flash sites without buying or using Flash itself. And if anyone wants to get into a traditional office suite done as SaaS (Software as a Service), there's Zoho (we won't mention the big one that starts with 'G').
This meeting will follow our usual format: job club starts at 6:30 and goes for about 30 minutes or so, then 15 minutes of mingling and networking, and then the actual discussion/demonstration/whathaveyou will begin around 7:15.
See you all then!
