LA SLUG is a group created so that interaction designers and developers can come together to learn about Silverlight, Expression and creating rich internet applications.

LASLUG has been put on hold, since the co-Founder and my beloved friend Microsoft Expression Blend MVP Victor Gaudioso passed in April, 2012. Members are referred to vNext_OC for meetings until we decide what to do with this great user group - the first user group ever to live stream our meetings!

You can see "Victor's Final Tribute" video here on Brian Laguna's XAML.TV: . Over 40 members attended just to watch a .pptx about him and pay their final tributes. At the end of the video, I said (it's difficult to hear me sometimes when I'm speaking freely) "I chose the theme song from "The Gladiator" movie because at the end of the movie, the sister to the Emperor of Rome passed her dead brother to go to Maximus, saying to the crowd "He was a soldier of Rome. Let's honor him. Victor was a soldier of Microsoft. Let's honor him."

David J. Kelley and Brian Lagunas took over all Victor's tutorials and domains and put them on a blog so it will last in eternity. You can find it here: and also every tutorial is on XAML.TV.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
