A week ago, Seattle's first Blender User Group (SeaBUG) launched with great success at The Art Institute of Seattle. Although there were some logistical issues in the beginning, Blender users from throughout the Pacific Northwest packed the classroom, with Prophetic Sky, Inc handing out promotional copies of Townrs Defender. Presenters showed off a multitude of projects, tutorials and experiments, making SeaBUG an action-packed event that easily filled the six hours. One thing was clear to the attendees: none of them realized so many talented Blender users existed in the Seattle area.
Another SeaBUG is planned for Saturday, December 5, 2009. It will once again be held at The Art Institute of Seattle, North Campus, room #104. Walk-ins are still encouraged, although you can also RSVP at seabug.eventbrite.com
Additionally, the yeoman Blendermasters of SeaBUG are taking suggestions for tutorials. If you have a specific topic you'd like to see covered, email [email protected] and we will try to put some learning materials together.
