AIR: the Adobe Integrated Runtime. We all know what it is, right? Rich applications deployed to the desktop across different operating systems. Blah, blah, blah, whatever. But do you really know what it can do? For example, do you know that it can render PDF, access the clipboard, send email, clean the toilet, talk to the dead and predict the future?
Alright, fair play, it can't send email. But it's definitely dead powerful and you need to know more about it. Some might say you need to get "up close and personal" with it. That's right hunny, real tight, nice n' cosy! Keep a window in your diary cos next Tuesday at FlashBrighton it's time for you, Adobe AIR and platform evangelist Serge Jespers to get it on!
The best thing to have come out of Belgium since Jacques Brel, Freelance Flash Developer & friend to "Miss Belgium 2002" Serge Jespers is coming all the way across the Channel just to present at FlashBrighton. Serge is an Adobe authorised AIR authority and he's coming to talk to us about it. He's gonna go through ALMOST ALL of the AIR API's with us and show us how to use them. ALMOST ALL of them. He's got code samples. He's gonna cover separate windows, file access, all that crazy jazz. It's gonna be awesome. Serge has been doing this $Ω¡† for over 10 years now. He know's his stuff, believe.
Seriously, how cool is this? We don't just organise sessions, we bring Flash gurus from a whole 'nuther country just to talk to you! For, like, free!! For completely no munny!!! This stuff isn't easy to organise so don't be a dope and miss out. Sign up here, now for your usual raffly goodness. Places are OMG JUST SO COMPLETELY LIMITED TO 25, BE QUICK!!!
