May 2011- Christophe Coenraets on Flash Builder and Flex 4.5
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Christophe Coenraets, a leading Adobe Technical Evangelist, will be discussing and showing off the latest capabilities of the new release of Creative Suite 5.5 which includes Flash Builder 4.5, Flash Catalyst 4.5 and Flex SDK 4.5. This event will have detailed information for both Designers and Developers. All are welcome.
Although FB4.5 is a dot release, there are some major changes, including much more powerful cross platform development and very significant amounts of optimization for target platforms, including iOS devices.
There are also lots of workflow and SDK changes that affect Developers and Designers. There will be ample time for questions and demonstration. Christophe is a very hands on presenter with deep knowledge of the product. He frequently answers questions by building an example on the spot.
This will be a great session. A full agenda will be posted shortly, but to give you a sense of what will be covered check out this example from Christophe's blog and this user story posted on Ben Forta's blog in March.
