    We need Meeting Speakers!

    You don't have to be a polished speaker to present out our meeting. You just have to have a topic that you are confident in and a willingness to share. Many of our meetings turn into exploration of a technique or topic rather than a lecture. We always provide an internet connection and we encourage exploring code samples with the group. Here are some examples:

    • Working with an IDE - If you consider yourself an expert at configuring the Flash IDE or manipulating Dreamweaver settings then perhaps you would like to share some of those tips.
    • Using a Coding Framework - If you are a fusebox Guru or have a custom cfc framework we'd love to hear it!
    • New Technology - Perhaps you have quickly adopted a cutting edge technology and you want to share the insights You learned while exploring it.
    • Project or Product - If you have a new site or project that is innovative and unique and you want to share it with us we'd love to see it and ask about your approach.
