During our June meeting, we are honored to host Ryan Stewart to talk about the new version of Flash Builder, Flash, Creative Suite and a whole host of other software that Adobe recently shipped. With the release of Flash Builder 4.5 Adobe added support for building mobile applications with ActionScript and Flex for iOS, Android, and the BlackBerry PlayBook. Ryan Stewart, a developer evangelist for Adobe, will be coming to talk about the new mobile workflow and how you can use your Flex skills to deploy mobile apps across those platforms. He'll talk about the new workflows for deployment and debugging, some tips and tricks that will help you optimize your code, and some things to keep in mind as you're creating applications for all three platforms. This is one of the biggest Flex and Flash Builder releases yet and it opens up the world of mobile development to every Flex developer.
We will also be giving away a copy of Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5 in addition to many other awesome prizes!
