So you want to start a business?

I had a long discussion with Justin Beals about folks I knew who were returning to their freelance-working ways. It’s been a long time since our economy has been preforming well enough that the thought of starting your own business wouldn’t completely freak you out. At the end of that conversation, Justin said “I hope these people know what they are in for.” I said “Why don’t you tell them?”

Justin Beals, owner of Roundbox Media — a company that has thrived over the past five years — will let you in on some of his successes and failures at setting up and running an business in the interactive industry. If you are serious about starting to freelance or starting your own interactive shop, bring pad and pencil (and perhaps a helmet) to this illuminating session.

Need an integrated environment where you can edit Java, Actionscript, XML, and also view your server’s

Leif Wells, your AtlMMUG Manager, will show you how to streamline your development process by using a few Open Source tools (and a couple of inexpensive add-ons). We’ll take you through the somewhat complicated process of installing these items and then show you how to make it work for you.
