this sounds interesting. i need the basic as well. the previous incarnation of the group sounded
more a platform for the experienced developer, sort of a networking
group. i'm on a mac, but for learning i don't think it makes a dif
the interfaces are pretty much mutually recognizable these days
where the meetup is held would make a dif to me. i live in northern burbs and am
looking for something i can get to without too much hassle

Subject: Re: [flash-151] Saving the Flash meetup - for now. Could use input.
I'm just starting out myself, but would love to learn the basics and
get an idea of what can be done, how much it takes to learn and how
useful it is for advancing a budding web designer's skill set.
I have Flash, but only on my home PC. With no laptop yet, I'm not
sure what I could get out of meeting up, but would certainly give
round one a try and go from there.

I would appreciate any input on how we might maintain an environment that would be low-maintenance, inviting and easy access while still actually being useful or educational for members.

Do you want to see smalls presentations, give them, just network with others, talk about your dog, etc. Be honest. If you are new and would ideally like to just see tutorials among others where you could ask questions (but don't want to present yourself or feel pressure to do work, etc.), maybe we can try to figure that out.
