I am in Birmingham, AL. Perhaps forming the South East Joomla! users group (or better name), with the first meeting in Atlanta  8)

Steve and ZuZe -

I invite you both to join us in this thread - http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,138398.0.html - where we are going to begin talking as a community about JUGs.

Please keep moving on this group - this broader discussion should not slow down anyone trying to get rolling - but, we'd appreciate your participation in the discussion since you have demonstrated interest and obviously started to think on these things.

Thanks!
Amy :)

I am in Atlanta and just started using Joomla although I have used other frameworks for website development. I would be interested in meeting and talking with more people about Joomla.

I am also building a set of fairly complex web sites and would love to talk with someone for a brief minute about what their thoughts are about the best way to proceed. If any one is interested they can email me from my profile. Thanks.

I'm in New Orleans and have family in Atlanta  .... love Atlanta actually ... I know that Casey of JoomlaShack fame is in southern Alabama as well and frequents Atlanta :)

I would love to see people getting together in Atlanta ... it would be one more reason to visit more often!

Hi All

As promised, http://joomlasoutheast.com/ is up and running.

Please look past the rough-and-ready look and feel free to sign up.

We aim to have our first meeting(s) in Atlanta but also to reach out to current and potential Joomla users around the South East of the United States.

Hopefully the site can be a place where meetings across the region can be organized.

Still can't seem to log in. Tried to post and it told me only registered users could post. I say we eat too at the first meeting. Ever been to Eclupse De Luna? Or maybe it's Luna D'Eclipse? Off of Miami Circle.

Hi All

Its been suggested that we meet on Wednesday May 16th, between 7 pm to 9 pm. The place is Eclipse di Luna, really close to where 95, 85 and 20 all meet in central Atlanta. (Their website is http://www.eclipsediluna.com/)

Hopefully the first meeting will be introductory and organizational. We can think about a long-term meeting place (ideally with conference facilities) and what we want to learn from/give to the group.

PM me with any questions at all.
