Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Feb 25 will be "FarCry, tailoring your own CMS", with Geoff Bowers.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

FarCry CMS is built from the ground up to be customisable, extensible, and pluggable. Geoff Bowers shows how you can make your FarCry installation your own; building custom content types, skinning/theming websites, creating plugins and leveraging the FarCry Core framework to do your bidding.

SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

Geoff is the CEO and application architect for Daemon Internet Consultants. Apart from all the hard yakka working for Daemon ( http://daemon.com.au/ ), Geoff's an Adobe Certified Professional, regular poster to the Daemonite blog ( http://blog.daemon.com.au/ ), the self-styled Benevolent Dictator behind FarCry CMS ( http://farcrycore.org/ ), the face of the webDU conference ( http://webdu.com.au/ ) and Master of Full As A Goog ( http://fullasagoog.com/ ).

A downloadable FLV file will be made available after each meeting, offered as a link from the recordings page.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With over 2,000 members, no worries. :-)
