Last week – I was invited to join Open Coffee Meeting at Prague Starbucks and record a video podcast with Petr Mara and Honza Brezina. I’ve enjoyed it a lot, and by reading comments, people seem as well

I gave a presentation on Mapping and Geolocation with the Flash Platform today at Flash and the City. Below I’ve embedded the slides and you can download the PDF here. When I get some downtime today I’ll be uploading my demos as well.
I’ve seen some articles about this subject but I have not found one dealing with all the cases (webservices, BlazeDS, BlazeDS and Spring, data management).

I was talking to a few developers this week and they were telling me that they were really psyched about Flash Builder 4 but were waiting to upgrade. When I asked why, they explained that they were in the middle of Flex 3 projects and didn’t want to transition to the new Flex 4 SDK until they completed the project. I realized that in all of our excitement about Flex 4 and the new Spark component model, that we neglected to let everyone know that 80% of the new features in Flash Builder 4 can help you immediately with your Flex 3 application development. Andrew Shorten just posted a great new article in the Flex Developer Center explaining how to set up Flash Builder 4 so you can continue working on your Flex 3 projects with no disruption while taking advantage of the great new features. This article is a one-stop-shop to learn all things about migration, including both tool and SDK. James Ward also posted a short video where you can see Flash Builder 4 in action working on a Flex 3 project.

See the sneak peek video. We have already couple more apps, this is just a taste. [...]

Maybe some of you have heard about Air Analytics, a project that enables you to record analytics for your AIR project. I blogged about this last year, and despite I really wanted to use it for myself, I never had the time to start another AIR project so far.
I the mean time they started to [...]
