Happy New Year! To kick off the year here are a few announcements, I'll try to keep 'em short so you'll read the whole email and respond.

1) Ignite Fort Collins 10 is next Tuesday, Jan 24 and there are less than 30 tickets remaining! All tickets are $10 a piece and you can get them right here: http://bit.ly/ifc10tix. Don't miss our inaugural event at our new venue: the recently remodeled Lincoln Center in the Magnolia Theater.

2) Next FCIP Meetup is just two nights later, Thursday Jan 26. "Time Bandits". Don't miss this on-target panel-led event. Share and pick up a few new tips on being hyper-productive. I guarantee the time spent at this FCIP will save you dozens of hours over the next year. RSVP today: http://bit.ly/wGfM2d

3) We'd like to have an FCIP Meetup on version control systems and I need a couple of volunteers to present the topic. Here's what I'd like to see covered:

  1. Let's focus the talk on GIT, what it is, how it works
  2. Demo of using a graphic interface for GIT in a real-world situation
  3. Demo of top 7 command-line techniques for GIT
  4. A good explanation (even better - a demonstration) of how a team can benefit from using source control on a programming project, and also on a design project. Source control can be used for graphic files like Photoshop and Illustrator docs. Let's show attendees how to use it for those purposes.

If you have the experience to demonstrate two or more of those items we want you to speak! You don't have to cover the whole hour, just the topics you want. Respond to this email to volunteer and let's get this baby rolling.

4) We want to know what your skills are! I'd like everyone to go to your profile on the FCIP Meetup right here: http://www.meetup.com/goFCIP/profile/ 

Please update your profile, in particular the section labeled "What's your expertise? Flash, PHP, copywriting…". We want to use this as a resource so people can find you and bring you in on projects where you have the needed skills. It'll only take you two minutes so do it right now: http://www.meetup.com/goFCIP/profile/
