Re: [webdesign-390] Seattle Web Design Meetup--I need your thoughts about our group.

good questions.

1) beverage not important
2) location, anywhere but downtown. with street parking now being charged up to 8 pm and annoying traffic/one-way streets i often just don't go to meetings/events there anymore. I live in West Seattle so anywhere around Seattle would be good....even north (eg. Northgate) with free easy parking.
3) prefer formal presentation then informal afterwards. i'm quite a beginner and want to create an educational website for my colleagues (about 20 people) on surgical neurophysiology. I would like to know how to make interactive dynamic modules and have recently just sniffed how to do this. PHP? Java? Flash? HTML5?  for database issues, MySQL? do I even need to database what i want to do? (mostly provide pdf of medical journal articles). how do i make the articles searchable?  

I have soooooo many questions and my initial attempts at learning are revealing that web design is easy for the simple sites (eg. text-only static pages), and can be quite challenging for the more sophisticated ones.

Because I'm a beginner I don't feel right about assisting as coordinator at this point.

what nights are you planning on meeting? any weeknight except friday is occasionally not possible for me since surgery sometimes extends into the evening.

thanks for taking up the challenge of organizer!

Subject: [webdesign-390] Seattle Web Design Meetup--I need your thoughts about our group.

I have just started as the coordinator of Seattle Web Design Meetup.  Please consider the following and let me know your opinions:


Where would you like to meet?  One fixed downtown or Eastside location? Move locations as appropriate? Other?  Do you have a specific recommendation?  Are drinkables important to you, coffee, beer?


Do you want a formal presentation with discussion to follow or just open discussion of current projects and work-in-progress or an opportunity to ask questions?  What are three topics that would be of interest to you if someone could make a presentation?  Are you willing to be a presenter of some topic(s) related to web design?


Do you want to join me as an assistant coordinator?  What role would you like?
