Thanks Adobe onAir BusTour

This past Saturday evening, the Adobe onAir Bus Tour breezed into Raleigh/Durham for a three hour stop. Mike Chambers and Kevin Hoyt gave presentations on AIR, the technology formerly known as Apollo, and the rest of the onAIR Bus Tour team took questions.

Overall, I was left with the impression that jumping from Web Application Development to AIR Application Development can be very easy and the learning curve is small. By leveraging skills I already possess, HTML, Javascript, Ajax Frameworks, and Flex/ActionScript, I can create relevant cross-platform applications with all the power and reach of Native Desktop applications.

I am really really pumped up about the benefits and features I can offer my existing clients. I also am awash in interesting AIR applications for fun and profit. Thank You Adobe for stopping in Raleigh/Durham and showing off AIR.

I would also like to thank Critter, our CFUG manager for arranging and coordinating the event.

My girlfriend Shannon took some pictures at the event. I corrected the Map and the Schedule to reflect the Raleigh/Durham stop. Thanks also go to Shannon for coming with me to the event.
