Transportation from Center City
Also our good friend Tony Profeta of PDA Media will be arranging a get together in the city for a joint SEPTA field trip meetup at 5:30-6pmin front of the Clothespin (15th and Market) building to help our center city dwellers without cars, etc. to be able to participate and attend the meeting.

Topic Details:
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.

Many Upcoming Flash/Flex Related Events For Coming Weeks and Months

Here is a quick summary of a number of local, national and international events and conferences related to Flash, Flex and AIR that are coming in the next few weeks and months. If you know of any others, please drop us a note or leave a comment.












There is also one I'm looking for feedback on:

The <head> Conference (previously known as Singularity until recently) - Online attend from anywhere - October 24-26, 2008 - http://www.headconference.com/

I am currently considering getting a place together for at least one of the days, where we can be a "hub" venue for folks wanting to attend the conference, but also socialize a bit.

More info about becoming a hub is here: http://www.headconference.com/hubs/

Would anyone be interested in a one day Hub event? There is a cost associated with attending even virtually as a hub, and we might need to charge a litle above and beyond to cover the venue and refreshments - but it would allow you to at least attend in the presence of other humans. Please leave a comment or drop us a note if this sounds interesting, and based on feedback we will consider putting together a hub.
