This is an excellent resource. And all for free...
Take a week and learn Flex. It's a great tool.
Videos and exercise files available on DevNet...
Pecha Kucha is a place for creative people to meet and show off their work. The catch? Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, giving 6 minutes 40 seconds...and no more...to each.
I just updated the Calendar event for this week's meeintg, adding links to the videos we watched in the "Minutes" section. Not sure how those will come out. You may need to visit the Calendar listing here to see them.
As promised, the first MAX presentations have been posted to AdobeTV. Check it out! More to come!
Just a quick reminder that the December NOMMUG meeting will be tomorrow (Tuesday, 9 December).
Come share the holiday spirit with other NOMMUGers! And maybe win some schwag! There are at least half a dozen people who are eligible for this 6-month software giveaway, but you have to be there tomrorow night to win!
See you then!
Make sure you look at the time zones listed for any calendar event! It seems that if you are not logged into the Groups site, our events are listed in MST instead of CST!
This must be a lesson that you should Join NOMMG and always log in before participating in the site!
I've spoken about the Processing language/IDE/community before to NOMMUG. For newbie programmers, its a great way to learn how to code, especially for folks interested in the visual end of things. For more advanced coders, there's a lot of great tools, especially for visual prototyping. The project has been in development for since 2001, and they finally (after 162 revisions) released the first official, non-beta version last week. Its Java, so it certainly doesn't replace Flash for web delivery, but you can learn a lot about coding from Processing...then AS3 will be a snap!
And if you want a book recommendation, I can't give a higer one than to Daneil Shiffman's Learning Processing: A Beginner's Guide to Programming Images, Animation, and Interaction. Best introductory book on programming I've ever read....definitely going to use it in my classes in the future.
And if you want to go crazy with the whole physical computing thing, check out the Arduino project (built on Processing)...heck...need a holiday present for your geekiest friend (or yourself)? Make Magazine Arduino Gift Guide
SIGGRAPH 2009 will be held in New Orleans next August. They've just posted a Preview Video (WMV, ladies and gentleman...not always the most web friendly of formats) on their site to get you jazzed...so to speak...about going to the conference. We'll excuse the stereotypical music...for the time being...
Check it out and get involved!
