Dear all, just a quick email with some news and up and coming events for you to look forward to.
First up we now have O'Reilly as a sponsor of the group (w00t!). What this means is all group members can get 35% + free P&P off of O'Reilly books at oreilly.com. To take advantage of this benefit you'll need to read the details here on our Adobe Groups site: O'Reilly Sponsor benefits
Secondly, for those who have attended the physical meetings, we have Academy Class to thank for sponsoring our meeting pizza (:D). Thanks guys
Finally, those who bared the grim weather just before Xmas for the FLUG in the Pub. We'd like to thank Academy Class and TEKSystems for getting the beers in.
Februarys meeting will be a full on framework-fest; thanks to Richard Lord. Some of you may have seen Richard speak at various user groups and conferences and may have even seen a session or two of his on frameworks. Don't skip this if you have - there are new frameworks emerging every weeks or so; so it pays to be abreast of what's out there and more importantly which ones are more benficial to your project and process.
Places will be tight so make sure you sign up early to avoid standing or not getting in.
On The Radar
We are also planning a couple of secret events one in early March and the other in the Spring. I can't say too much about the March event yet, but the Spring event is one of our ever so popular Flash Camps! This one we're aiming at the more business orientated end of the Flex and AIR market and to reflect that we have decided to call it "Flex and the City". We'll be posting more information about this in the coming weeks but if you want to be involved - be it as a speaker, sponsor or plain ol' gopher just let us know and we'll start the ball rolling.
