I am pleased to announce the formation of a new local users group: The Utah Apple Users Group. We are a group of technophiles that use—and even cherish—products designed by Apple in California. We mainly exist simply as a mailing list where we converse and assist each other.
The state currently has two other related user groups—the BYU Macintosh Users Group and the Utah Macintosh Users Group—but both are affiliated with universities and thus governed by external policies and politics.They are also Macintosh groups, whereas this group covers all things Apple; and, as you are probably aware, Apple has recently expanded it’s product line in significant areas other than their Macintosh computer. UMUG also doesn’t have a mailing list and their forum has been offline for a long time. So, wether you’re a photographer using Aperture, a home theater nut hooking up your Apple TV, an entrepreneur using an iPhone, or a novice with a new iPod, jump on our mailing list and lets chat. We want everyone to feel welcome wether you are a student, a professional, or anyone else.
We do not plan on coordinating any events; we’re going to keep this simple. A website will be coming soon with syndicated news and events and we have an IRC channel for chatting in real time. Join the mailing list by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Berkeley Data Systems, creators of Mozy Online Backup, will be holding its second semiannual coding deathmatch on Saturday, April 14. Billed as a “thinly disguised recruiting effort to find the best local engineers,” the competition is open to all Utah residents.
The previous deathmatch saw over 100 participants and was a success both for the 8 finalists who received prize money, and for BDS who hired 4 new engineers in the process.
I am excited to announce the launch of the Utah Graphic Artists Forum. For years I have longed for a place where I could interactive with and meet new local artists. Having participated in many technical groups, I have grown to rely on and take for granted both the camaraderie and invaluable resource of information that such communities provide. Often frustrated by the lack of an official forum for art related questions however, I vowed to someday create the resource I longed for.
Officially launching tomorrow, I present the Utah Graphic Artists Forum, a gathering place for local graphic artists. My purpose is to promote and support the development and expression of graphic arts and to facilitating and ecouraging conversations and interaction between graphic artists in Utah, in an environment free of dues or obligations. I hope to provide something of value to members involved in all forms of the graphic arts, including illustrators, photographers, graphic designers, typographers, user interface designers, and web developers.
Both working professionals and students are welcome and encouraged to participate, discussing current events and trends, historical topics, theory, techniques, technology, business, and/or employment.
Features include a forum, mailing lists, an IRC channel for chat, job announcements, RSS feeds, syndicated calendar events, and plans to meet periodically for socials and workshops. Membership is free and open to anyone interested.
I encourage you to visit the site, register an account, and participate in the forum.
It’s Free and they are giving way product.

We are excited to announce that our own Jon Jensen was one of the eight tying winners of the Mozy Programming Deathmatch. Since there was no clear winner after the final challenge, the $10,000 was split 8 ways. What makes it especially newsworthy however is that Jon did all of the tests in PHP, much to the surprise of the organizers and competitors! Read more about this on Jon’s blog and the Salt Lake Tribune.
In a recent entry in his blog, John Taber, reviews his search for a good web framework. “In converting some software from java and c++ to web based systems, our first step was to choose a coding platform. Note I didn’t say language or framework or IDE—today it’s more of a package deal where one part depends on another. Today the clamor and hype is over frameworks. But in our case, we choose to cut through all that and ask: Is a “framework” needed? What is the right structure for a web based program? And what is the most productive, agile way we can get the job done?”
