Flash and AIR Continue to Move Forward
Scott Castle, LinkedIn | @dscottcastle - Senior Product Manager for Flash Runtimes
Scott gave several presentations at Adobe MAX 2011 on the Flash Platform and its focus on allowing designers and developer to build mobile content, mobile applications, in-browser content on mobile devices that looks like the same experience you get with native applications, and the same experience you get on the desktop and the browser. With the recent release of Flash Player 11 and AIR 3.0, Adobe continues to provide a platform that goes beyond what can be done by browsers alone.
