September 23, 2008: Introduction to Adobe AIR for Flex and Flash Developers

I’m happy to announce that well-known Flash and Flex author Joey Lott will be speaking at our September 23, 2008 meeting. Joey is traveling across the country, from east coast to west coast, on his way to Adobe MAX in San Francisco and we’re his first stop.

Thanks to the local Adobe user groups, FlashFocused and Detroit Area Adobe User Group for joining us in sponsoring this special event. Joey will be selling autographed books. Thanks to O’Reilly, we’ll have some books to give away too!

Abstract

Want to know how to use your existing Flex and/or Flash skills to build applications for the desktop using Adobe AIR? In this presentation we’ll look at what AIR is and is not, and we’ll look at the key features of AIR. We’ll go beyond the standard marketing presentation for AIR and instead focus on what is possible using AIR and what it takes to get up and running using AIR.
