6:45pm, last thursday my coleague Daniel Todd and me took a taxi to Old Street as the first London Flash Platform User Group was about to start.
We arrived just on time to a pub called Play for the first presentation given by Stefan Richter where for one hour he showed us the power of the Flash Media Server, the newest edition of the Flash Communication Server which has multi-user capabilities among many other cool features.
After the usual 15 minutes break, the second presentation came from Stuart Eccles who introduced us to the beautiful world of Ruby On Rails, a very intersting back end technology which its language seems to be very practical and easy to learn.
I had a great time and I think the organiser did very well.
Apart from that I would like to give a big thanks not only for the great presentations but because I was one of the lucky people who won a prize!
I started already reading Object Oriented Actionscript and so far seems to be one of the best books ever written about OOP and AS2 (if not the best!)
