This past Tuesday, Branden Hall , author of the new book “Object Oriented Programming with ActionScript”  took several hours off from starting a new studio with Joshua Davis  and hopped a train from DC to Philadelphia. Why you ask? So he could speak at the monthly meeting of the Philadelphia Flash MMUG  on topics covered in his new book. It was a great chance to listen to Branden speak in a smaller venue and to hang with him afterwords in a casual setting. Special thanks to Bill and J of SubcultureAlliance  for masterminding the event and organizing the PFMMUG  and to the University of the Arts of Philadelphia  for their facilities. I put together a small review and slideshow of a few photos from the meeting here.  I used the very cool slideshow component by Darshan Sawardekar  to put it together. Its quite useful. My implementation is a bit slow as I resisted the urge to downsample the photos past 800×600, slow CPU’s beware.
