The Orange County Flex User Group just had its first meeting, and it was standing room only! We had a dozen RSVPs but over double that number actually showed up! Space was tight, but everyone was excited at our kickoff meeting, which went over 2 hours. Laura gave an introductory presentation on Flex, which was a springboard for a lot of lively discussion and debate throughout the night. What made the discussions interesting was hearing different perspectives from our diverse audience, which included people from Flex, Flash, ColdFusion, Java, .NET and other technologies. Of the 24 questionnaires returned that night, the majority, 18 people, indicated they were new to Flex, and this really confirms for us why we started this user group. We are excited to see this tremendous interest out there in the developer and designer communities for Flex, and we want to keep this momentum going. If you missed our meeting or were unable to attend, we will have the video posted online soon, and in the meantime you can view the presentation slides at the OC Flex UG site. There was overwhelming interest in covering Adobe AIR at our next meeting, which will be December 6, so don't miss out!
