Reminder - Event Tonight 7pm - Adobe Flex 3 and AIR Pre-Release TourJust a reminder that tonight at 7pm in Center City Philadelphia is the Adobe Flex 3/AIR 1.0 Pre-Release Event. This is the first official meeting of the new Philadelphia Flex User Group with new Manager Derek Wischusen running the show. Adobe employees Dave Gruber, Group Product Manager for Flex and Tim Buntel Senior Product Manager for Flex, will be dropping science on the upcoming releases. The official blurb:
"Flex 3 and AIR are getting close to launch and in preparation, Dave Gruber from the Adobe Flex/AIR product team is coming to Philly in January to show off the great new features and help prepare us for this exciting launch.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, extending rich applications to the desktop, enabling access to the local file system, system tray, notifications and much more. Now you can write desktop applications 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 the opportunity to see and hear about this highly anticipated release of Flex 3 and AIR during this special pre-release tour. Plus, in addition to giving away some one of a kind Flex/AIR branded schwag, we will also be raffling off a copy of Flex Builder 3 Professional (pending availability) and a full commercial copy of CS3 Web Premium at this event as well as an iPod shuffle and other goodies!"
