October Meeting -- Lets chat about Mobile

October 15 2012 by Nick Kwiatkowski

During our October Meeting on the 17th at 7pm, we will be having a show-and-tell for mobile app development.  Still not sure how to start with your first project?  Do you need to develop for the "other" platform? Mobile projects in a team enviroment?  We will have experts that will be available to help you along.

There will not be a formal presentation.  We will be meeting over food and beverages at MBC Downtown (402 S. Washington Ave., Lansing, MI -- on the corner of Washington and Kalamazoo).  THIS IS NOT OUR NORMAL MEETING LOCATION. Appetizers will be provided :)

September Meeting -- Playing well with others

September 06 2012 by Nick Kwiatkowski

During our September Meeting on 12th at 7pm, we will be talking about the tools of the trade that are out there when working on web and mobile projects as a team.  

Do you still share your code among your co-workers using a network share, or Dropbox?  Do you use sticky notes to communicate bugs across team members?  Is the only time that you communicate with your team that a project is finished is when you send them the email that says "Make it go live!"?  

We will cover some basic theories of project management, version control, and team interactivity.  We will show some version contol systems such as SVN, Git and GitHub for sharing code, and some project management tools such as Assembla and Trac.  

This meeting will be programming language agnostic and should be useful for both Flex developers and HTML5 / Java / Objective-C devs as well.

We will be meeting in room 161 in the Communication Arts and Sciences Building.

Adobe User Group Picnic

August 06 2012 by Nick Kwiatkowski

On August 15th, 2012 we will be holding our annual Adobe UG Picnic in the Park.  Everybody is welcome -- this will just be a relaxed evening coupled with hotdogs, burgers, and friends.  This will be a family-friendly event (Patriarche Park has a great playground!).  

We will be meeting at 6:30, and the food should be ready around 7:00.  We will be on the east-end of the baseball fields (in the wooded area). Patriarche Park is located on the corner of Alton and Saginaw Highway, in East Lansing (about a mile north of campus).  Food and drinks will be provided.  If you have any special dietary needs (such as Betsy's Bacon-Only diet), please bring that along, though.

If the weather prohibits us from meeting in the park, we will be meeting about 1/4 mile west at Reno's East.

July Meeting -- Over the Top and in your hand

July 10 2012 by Nick Kwiatkowski

On July 18th, we will be having a presentation that will cover deploying video on multiple devices, including laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets and televisions.  Lots of technologies have been introduced in the last two years that allow content producers to push video online and in HD.  Learn about the steps to tag video, encode video, deploy and consume video.  We will show a sample video application that is able to consume video on all 5 different platforms.  

The meeting will start at 7pm and will be held in room 1145 within the Engineering Building (North/West corner of the building, on the corner of Shaw and Red Cedar).  ** THIS IS NOT OUR NORMAL MEETING LOCATION **

June Meeting

June 14 2012 by Nick Kwiatkowski

We have decided to cancel our June meeting this year.  There have been a few scheduling conflicts, so it seemed better just to start off fresh in July!

If you have any topics you would like to hear, please let Nick know (nick@theflexgroup.org).  We will be having a July meeting, and our annual BBQ in August.
