The Columbus Digital Adobe User Group had a rough time of 2011. We got off to a solid start but had a hard time coordinating meeting dates, projects and group direction as the year went on. We had some meetings in the first part of the year, but our facebook group seems to have vanished entirely. I have no idea why - the link to the group now simply goes directly to facebook.com, it's like it doesn't exist, but it was there!
In 2011 we had presentations about:
1) Adobe AIR for BlackBerry development (as part of the RIM promotion)
2) Introduction to Drupal, showcasing some Dreamweaver functionality in the process.
3) An introduction to Arduino, with emphasis on making Arduino and Flex play nicely together
4) A look at how to design for Mobile
5) Several meetings to design a new website. The design is complete, but this was never developed.
Moving forward, 2012 is going to bring an all-new direction to the Adobe User Group. Jenn Deafenbaugh is going to be taking over and revitalizing this group. Look for more announcements and information soon!
I want to congratulate Pam McClung on winning the Adobe $2100 software give-away for the first half of 2010. She was very excited and surprised to win. I would like to thank all of you who came to the meeting and a special thank you to Chris Shrier of Madison and Fifth for hosting the event and providing yummy food from Spinelli's Deli.
We will have one more $2100 software give-away toward the end of the year. We have not decided what we are going to get entered to win, but we will have it planned out before the next meeting.
I wanted to remind everyone to RSVP for the presentation night that is happening next Tuesday, March 30th. We have received word from Adobe that they are going to start migrating the User groups sites to a new system starting this Saturday, and they are suggesting anything added to the current site be done by Friday, March 26, as data entered after that may not get included in the migration. So you might want to RSVP soon to ensure your entry in our contest, (see below). Your username must be on the RSVP list to be included in the contest.
SPECIAL NOTE: Every 6 months, Columbus Digital is able to raffle off a coupon for up to $2100 worth of software at the Adobe store. We will be having our first give-away of 2010 at our June meeting.
For the next 4 meetings, you can be entered in the drawing to win the software giveaway. All you have to do to be entered is RSVP to the monthly meetings. You have a maximum of 4 opportunities to enter, March's, April's, May's and June's meetings. It does not matter what your RSVP option you select, (Yes, Maybe, No). You just have to RSVP to be entered. The RSVP section is almost to the bottom of the page, just above the Post a Comment section.
Adobe has been very busy and has released two products, ColdFusion Builder (CF10) and Flash Builder (Flex 4) were just released and Adobe CS5 will be released in 19 days. So it is a great time to work with Adobe products. Over the next several months, we are going to try and highlight some of the new features of these products.
As an added bonus to Columbus Digital, on Tuesday, April 20th, Kevin Hoyt, an Adobe Platform Evangelist, will be our guest speaker on a special presentation night. He is going go go over some of the great new features of Flex 4. I know this is 3 Flex meetings in a row, and I apologize about this, but we did not know that Kevin was going to be in Columbus when we booked Kris Schultz to present. I have seen Kevin present before and he is very passionate about Flex and is a great presenter.
I will have more information about this special meeting once we have more details, but I wanted to let you know the news now so you could plan for it and tell your friends. By early April, I hope to have all the details for you.

December's presentation night is just a few days away. Please go to the event at columbusdigital.org and RSVP so we can let our sponsors know how many people we will have at the event.
I would like to first thank everyone who came out to our November meeting at Ohio State University's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design. I would like to especially thank Maria Palazzi for the incredible presentation on Synchronous Objects as well as a tour of the ACCAD facility and Jenn Deffenbaugh for helping put it all together. It was an amazing presentation and tour and I encourage you to go to their website and take a look: http://www.synchronousobjects.osu.edu.
I would also like to thank Jake Hammond from Robert Half Technologies for sponsoring the event and bringing a great array of food for us.
Next Tuesday, December 1st, is the deadline for registering for our December Data Visualization contest. The winner will receive a $2100 voucher to buy a product at the Adobe Store. We have other prizes as well for both contestants and attendees. If you are interested in participating, please take a look at the official rules and please register so we know how to prepare your entry for the meeting.
Tuesday, December 8th, will be the judging for the Data Visualization contest on a special December meeting. This meeting will be held at Lextant in the historic Smith Brothers hardware building downtown and will be sponsored by both Lextant and Apex Systems. We are planning on having a buffet that night. We encourage you to come as the attendees will be judging the contestants work. So we need a lot of judges for the event.
I will post more information in the next week about our last meeting of the year.
