I recently took over managing the Adobe User Group of Atlanta.

[Pause for cheers]

If you are not already a member of the Adobe User Group of Atlanta, you can join here.

As you know, Adobe is in the process of releasing a point upgrade to the Creative Suite products, and so for the first meeting with the Group, I want to take the opportunity to give an overview of the high points of the new suite. I think we all like these ‘launch party’ meetings to be fun and interesting so I’ve arranged a few things for you.

First and most important, the meeting will run in conjunction with the Atlanta Flex User Group. Douglas Knudsen manages this group and he has kindly agreed to share his venue and his party with us. Thanks Doug!!!

Which leads to the second thing – the User Group details are as follows:-

When: Wednesday, May 18, 2011, 6pm
Where: Vaco, 2 Ravinia Dr Atlanta, GA

Lastly, there will be some swag from Adobe and a raffle for software. Be sure to wear your lucky pants!

Since I moved to Atlanta, I have been getting to know Jay Lambert. Jay is an active member of the Atlanta eLearning community, and an independent eLearning developer, running Integrated Learning Services.

A few weeks ago, Jay and I had lunch and discussed Jay’s idea of setting up an informal eLearning discussion group in Atlanta. Not a web forum, but a real live face-to-face group.

I think it is an awesome idea, and I am pleased to announce our first eLearning Discussion and Coffee meeting. Jay included details in his blog post about Atlanta eLearning events a few days ago, and I summarize them here.

Meet with us on Tuesday May 24th at 4:30pm at the La Madeleine’s by Perimeter Mall to informally discuss eLearning tactics over coffee.

Topics currently under consideration are:

    Learning Analytics,
    Is rapid design really rapid?
    Instructional design tips.

You should also note that this is the same evening that the ASTD Atlanta INC SIG is holding an event on e-newsletters right around the corner, so many of us will go from the coffee to that.
