First thanks to those of you who made it last night.? Again I apologize for the short notice, the next meet up will have at least a weeks notice probably more.
Big thanks to George Cook for sharing his work on Flexbug with us (http://code.google.com/p/flexbug/ ).? It was really in the spirit of what we are hoping to do with the group.? George had something to add to the talk and just got up and shared for a few minutes.? In a nutshell Flexbug is like the popular firefox plugin firebug.? It allows real time introspect into a running swf with support for editing parameters real time.? It was impressive to say the least and thanks again!
Of course I have to thank our Host LBi for providing us with a great space to hold our event and the fridge stocked with assorted beer.? Also thank you to our new sponsor, Academy Class ( http://academyclass.com/ ), they provided the pizza last night.
Lastly a few plugs and opportunities.?
? LBi is always looking for some fresh talent so if you think you have what it takes email me directly at [address removed] and I will put you in touch with the right people.
? Academy Class is holding some FREE one day courses on flex ( http://www.bringyourownlaptop.co.uk/flexJumpstart/index.html ).? All you need to do is register and ‘Bring your own laptop’ with flex 3 installed.? The first course on the 22nd of October is nearly full so hurry and sign up.
