Check out some detailed directions:


This month, we'll be hosting a panel discussion entitled "Flash, What is it Good For? - Where Does Flash fit on the Web?".

Recently there has been a lot of buzz about the role of Flash online. With some well known Flash shops -- like Big Spaceship -- opting for a site that's more blog than Flash and HTML 5 on the horizon there seem to be more and more speculation as to what will be the next Flash killer. Have the times changed? Has the Flash microsite been killed by blogs and social media? What role does Flash play on the web now - especially when dealing with web standards. Where might it fit in the future? These are the kinds of questions we'll be discussing on the panel.

So far, our panelists include:

* Josh Sager, Pittsburgh Technical Institute, joshsagermedia.com
* Jeremy Shank, Artist/Illustrator and Multimedia Designer at Atlas Design Group. jeremyshank.com
* Wayne Lincoln, Interactive Art Director, New Perspective, Adjunct Professor, CMU
* Nathan Peretic, Developer, Full Stop Interactive
* Geoff Barnes, Information Architect at Elliance, Inc.

We may have an additional panelist or two added before the meeting. We're doing our best to put together a panel with many different opinions in order to have a good discussion.

Val Head, Senior Designer/Developer, New Perspective, Manager, PITTMFUG will be moderating the panel.

Like our last panel discussion, it will help to have some questions in advance. If you would like to submit any questions in advance of the meeting, send them to us at [email protected]. It would be a huge help to have a nice pool of questions to pull from in advance.

As always, please RSVP by sending an email to [email protected] so we can plan accordingly!
