Highlights of the onAir Adobe Bus Tour – Part 3

Quick Reminder: My photos can be viewed here. All of the photos from all the attendees can be viewed here.

Ben Forta’s presentation was great (as always) – although I wish they had given him a bit more time to dive into some more extensive CF / AIR integration examples. He demonstrated the two different application wizards that are in Flex Builder / Eclipse. He then took the AJAX Aplication and Integrated it into an AIR Application. As you may have guessed, this was a breeze with AIR. After the application was created with the wizard, he just created a new AIR project with a single HTML control – and set the location to the AJAX Application. Obviously there are multiple ways to do this – but Ben did a great job showing the simplicity of it all. On a side note, I love to see people’s reactions the first time they use these wizards – most people are absolutely floored.

Many other people shared the stage. All of the presentations had value. Some were better than others, but that is to be expected. Overall, I would rate this conference a 9 out of 10. I can’t wait to see what Max will be like this year.

For some great sample AIR code, I would recommend checking out the code used for the onAir Tour Bus Applications. You can get that here. Some of that code is a bit advanced. I will be posting some beginner tutorials over the next few days. Stay tuned.

Once again, great job Adobe.
