Adobe MAX Video: The Future of Digital Publishing: Delivering News through Adobe AIR

Another excellent session at Adobe MAX this year was presented by members of our Experience Design team. The session description was the following:

Learn from Jeremy Clark of Adobe’s Experience Design team how his group has leveraged Adobe AIR, Flex, and the Text Layout Framework (now in beta on Adobe Labs) to help the New York Times and others reach new and existing customers.

Adobe MAX Video: Explore Deployment and Distribution Options for Adobe AIR Applications

Adobe AIR team member Oliver Goldman presented a session titled "Explore Deployment and Distribution Options for Adobe AIR Applications" at Adobe MAX last week. This is an excellent session for IT administrators, developers or architects that are interested in learning more about the distribution and deployment options for AIR. Oliver also previews some of the new capabilities we are working on related to native installer support in AIR 2 (see 38:30 if you are interested in this specific topic).

Adobe MAX Video: What's Coming in Adobe AIR 2

Last week, we were thrilled to preview Adobe AIR 2 at Adobe MAX where we unveiled some of the new capabilities coming to the runtime. In addition, there were dozens of sessions covering AIR ranging from application case studies to deployment strategies and more.

During the rest of this week, I will be highlighting a few of the AIR-related sessions. I encourage you to explore and discover the over 250 hours of content in the design, develop and envision tracks that covered topics ranging from Photoshop to ColdFusion to LiveCycle and beyond. All of this content is currently available on Adobe TV. Please note that some of the recordings may not start right away and you may need to fast-forward a bit (the team at Adobe.TV did an amazing job of getting these sessions online as quickly as possible).

The first session I would like to highlight is What’s Coming in Adobe AIR 2 by Adobe AIR team member Christian Cantrell. If you are interested in what some of the new API’s will look like in AIR 2, this is a session you will definitely want to check out.

Adobe User Group Tour

As you probably know, we launched the first public betas for Flash Builder 4, Flash Catalyst, and Flex SDK 4 in June 2009.
