Our friends in Pittsburgh are putting on Flashpitt for the second year
this October.  This year's Flashpitt is now a two day event on October
15 & 16, 2009.  They'll have four half-day workshops on intro level
topics -- like ActionScript 3.0 and iPhone development -- followed by a
day packed full of sessions. And they've given FITC peps a 10% discount code: FITC09

Some of the speakers you'll see at Flashpitt include: Jer Thorp, Seb
Lee-Delisle, Odopod, Dan Mall, and Stacey Mulcahy.  It's a great chance
to catch some stellar speakers, pick up some new skills, and make new
connections in a smaller setting.  All the details can be found on
their site:  www.flashpitt.com
