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. Its a short bus ride from center city to the location, so no excuses for not coming out.
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.
