Subject Re: [Wiki][User Groups] Update
Date Sat, 28 Jan 2012 05:49:28 GMT
Since the post below I have also posted on the User Group Managers list 
at Adobe. Currently, from responses and research volunteers and I have 
compiled a list of 30-40 Flex user groups and are reaching out in order 
to confirm their status.

Response has been good so far from groups in US, Europe, South America, 
and Asia Pacific - contacts outside of those are still needed. A number 
of groups express concern over the situation regarding Flex and are 
following the AF ML to see how things develop. A few groups have closed 
or renamed themselves to 'Web Development' or 'Flash' instead of Flex 
but these are currently in the minority.

I expect to have a pretty solid list early next week and would like to 
post it on a wiki page (not sure what the status is on that). Any idea 
on when a wiki will be live and who I should provide the list to ? Happy 
to help post it.
