Local Philadelphia Flex User Group - Back in ActionAs many of you know, the manager of the Philadelphia Area Flex User Group, Mark Belsterling, passed away unexpectedly in September, leaving a void in our community. We have been working behind the scenes to get things going again as soon as possible to sustain the great momentum that Mark had been able to generate in only a few short months.
So I am pleased to announce that Derek Wischusen has stepped up to take over the management of the group. Many of you may already know Derek from previous meetings, or from his work supporting and contributing to both the Flex and Flash Platform Groups here in Philly, as well as his own personal endeavours, including: Flex on Rails: http://flexonrails.net/ and articles on Adobe's Developer Network about Ruby and Flex: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/articles/flex2_rails.html
Derek has re-named the group and started a new site: The Philadelphia Flex User Group - http://phflex.org/ as well as a google groups discussion list. So check out and bookmark the new site, and make sure you subscribe as a member to the new group if you are interested.
Derek already has a great event planned for late January revolving around Flex 3 and AIR - more details will be posted shortly here and on Dereks new site for the group. We are going to try and squeeze in a social/holiday party before the end of the year if at all possible - still working on the details on that - more to come shortly, stay tuned!
