Event Details

Thanks to everyone for making our End-of-the-Season Meeting a huge success! We had record attendance with both established and new members — and some great speakers too! We all enjoyed some good snacks and great conversation in an awesome theater at Madison Media Institute.

Our favorite InDesign guru, James Fritz, made a special trip out to amaze us with fabulous new features in CS5.5. He showed us how going from InDesign to ePub has been made faster and easier. Even preparing InDesign files for HTML and CSS has been improved beyond belief. Fritz gave us all reason to take a closer look at this "in between" version of our favorite program.

Dave Haglund, a long-time Madison IDUG member, helped round out the evening by sharing his experience with building iPad apps with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. He sparked our interest in this cutting-edge technology. (Who wouldn't have fun with an iPad anyway?)

Great prizes were won including a full Design Premium CS5.5, a webinar with Pariah Burke, and lots of Adobe merchandise.

It was a memorable evening that brought a joyful end to the meeting season. Enjoy the long summer days, and when it starts getting cold again, look for an IDUG invitation in your inbox. We'll start up again in September with all new topics and more great speakers. Thanks for your great ideas on meeting topics, and for your unrivaled support for our Madison chapter!

See you soon!
