Due to a technical error (all my fault) the 'Join this Group' link was missing from this page for 24 hours or so. A thousand apologies! The button has been restored and I chastised myself appropiately (no coffee for a whole 30 minutes).
Normal service has been resumed.
Oh - and you are right, the map in the logo is hideous :-) I'll fix that as soon as I have 10 minutes to spare - or send me your suggestions :-)
Welcome... Tis the time for another Gulfcoast Adobe User Group meeting and exciting things are afoot.
When: Wednesday, May 2, 2012
Meeting details for this month's meeting are available and posted on the groups page at http://gcaug.com/2012/07/30/august-2012-aug-meeting/.
Here are some of the benefits to User Group Membership:-
Access to information
I see various book offers, but some seem to be hard to quantify - thus hard to sell to prospective members as benefits
Your User Group Manager is usually an experienced developer or designer with years of experience with Adobe products. Steve Howard, the manager of this group, has 12 years experience as multimedia developer, specialising in eLearning. He has close contact with many Adobe employees and product enginees, which means that user group members can tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience right in the heart of Adobe.
We have a new member of the group who is in Ocean Springs. She's asked me if anyone will be attending Novembers meeting who might be able to car pool with her.
If you are, or a friend of yours is, in or near Ocean Springs and could carpool, please comment here or contact me by email or Twitter @SteveHoward999 @GulfCoastAUG
It’s that time again and we have lots to go over at our December 2012 monthly user group meeting.
It’s time for our biannual software raffle to members. You must be present to be eligible so show up and bring your luck with you.

December 2nd meeting - win a free copy of Camtasia for Mac!
as you will have seen from our calendar, in this month's meeting I will compare Adobe Captivate and Techsmith's Camtasia. Adobe has given me some goodies - including a great laptop case - and Techsmith has given me a full license for Camtasia for Mac to give away.
As usual, I have oodles of smaller things to share with you all, in addition to some great information. Be sure to invite all your techie friends to join us!
Don't forget the December Adobe User Group Meeting is tonight, December 7, 2011 at the Jefferson Davis Campus of MGCCC in Gulfport.
We will have pizza for those that wish to partake (please bring a few dollars to pitch in) and an intriguing presentation by Kenneth Loebenberg on photo retouching, color correction, tips for speeding up your workflow, and how to use a Wacom tablet in photoshop.
See you there...

We had another great meeting tonight. Don't forget to post questions, requests, suggestions for a meeting topic, ideas for presentations etc etc - you can either reply to this post, or pos to a new thread in the discussion area of this User Group site.
I wonder if some people had difficulty finding us in the new meeting location at JD? Sorry for the confusion that the location change may have caused, but we should be meeting in this new location at JD campus each month from now on. If you planned to attend last night but didn't find us, please contact me so that we can make sure you know how to find us next time.
I showed some demos of the new Flash Catalyst public Beta 1. Those who attended were very impressed at how easy Catalyst makes it to set up and create complex, interactive interfaces with basic transitions etc.
I've been busy over the last few months and so I have not managed to put in all the time that I would have liked into learning catalyst, so I cheated and showed demos from Lynda.com and InsideRIA.com.
I've attached a brief PowerPoint file to this blog post and the PowerPoint includes links to the demos I used. Please take the time to download the PowerPoint and check out the links. These will help you get up to speed with Flash Catalyst and show you most of the features in the current build. If you have not already seen a Flash Catalyst demo you will be impressed at the power of the tool!
