Sounds like fun. A bit short notice for an East Coast person, like me, but I like the topic list!

Glad you hear you'll be joining us Cluso99. I'll look out for you. I'm managing the webinar chat.

Rayman, you can still participate in the webinar if you're free.

It will start at 10am Friday 28th AESST (Australian Eastern Standard Summer Time) - see you then!

Lauren: Is there anything I need to download beforehand, or just login as guest?

Were invitations sent out to this event? I haven't received one and I've gotten them for previous webinars.

I plan to attend via webinar, also. I hope it's not too overloaded, so we can all see the presentations. :) Seems like a LOT of people will want to watch the webinar!

Yipee!

I now finally live close enough to attend a Parallax event! Is there a place I need to sign-up for this or do I just show up in Rocklin at 4pm?

Everyone can log in as a guest on the webinar or just show up in Rocklin if you live close by. Marketing sent out a newsletter about the event last week and another email was sent out this week by one of the hosts, Kevin Cook. If you weren't on the email list don't worry you're definitely invited and are welcome to join in!

I'll be checking this forum thread before and during the event. If anyone has questions or trouble accessing the webinar post your questions here and I'll be sure to answer them.

We will be using Adobe Connect for the webinar.

Great! See you tomorrow! For those of new to the area, how's traffic coming up from Folsom around that time?

If you're planning to be here at 4pm then I don't think traffic will be very bad, but if you leave after 4:30 then I'm sure it will take longer then normal. I don't know what the traffic is like from Folsom to Rocklin but from Sacramento to Rocklin there can be quite a bit of traffic doubling your drive time.
