build guild pittsburgh a success!

Our first Build Guild Pittsburgh meeting took place last week. I'm just now getting the chance to write a few things about it.

First we had about 30 people show, which, for a small event was a great turnout. Hoping we can get even more next time.

The group that gathered was an interesting mix of university folk, freelance designers and programmers and we also had a few entrepreneurs and company owners.

I snagged 2 free books (Illustrator and InDesign CS4 Quick Start) and shared some industry stories.

The food at Silky’s in Bloomfield was very good, I had a large salad along with 3 pints.

The only real drag was the lack of AC..the place was pretty sweltering by the end of the night.

PS. I played my first game of Shufflepunk and won!



  1. Ohhhhhhh's ShufflePUCK! LOL!!!! (Unless it's me that's saying it wrong, HAHA!)

  2. HAHA oh I don't know, Shufflepunk sounds much cooler. I'm not going to fix it..b/c it's funny :)
