About the Meeting:
As you may have heard, Adobe has announced the release of Adobe Flex 3 and Adobe AIR 1.0. Now that the cat is out of the bag, this will be the focus of our Monday, February 25, 2008 special meeting! Adobe is sponsoring this meeting with giveaways and a raffle copy of Adobe Flex Professional.
Flex 3 is a feature-packed release, adding new UI components like the advanced datagrid and improved CSS capabilities; powerful tooling additions like refactoring; and extensive testing tools including memory and performance profiling, plus the addition of the automated testing framework to Flex Builder.
Adobe AIR is game-changing in so many ways, delivering rich applications on the desktop, enabling access to the local file system, system tray, notifications and much more. Now you can write RIAs on the desktop using the same skills that you've been already using to create great web apps including both Flex and AJAX.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to see and hear about this highly anticipated release of Flex 3 and AIR at this meeting, Monday, February 25, 2008..
