Greetings and welcome to the Adobe AIR development team blog. My name is Rob Christensen and I’m a product manager on Adobe AIR. The purpose of this blog is to share thoughts, tips, and announcement related to Adobe AIR. In the coming months, you can expect to see posts from a variety of people on our development team.
Second, Rich Tretola announced the O’Reilly contest winners for the Adobe AIR Cook-off contest. Congratulations to Greg Jastrab, Jeff Tapper, and Jamie Kosoy for winning the contest. If you are not familiar with the Adobe AIR cookbook, it’s a valuable resource for discovering and sharing code recipes for common development challenges.

Third, our annual Adobe MAX conference takes place in San Francisco this year from November 16th-19th and a limited number of tickets are currently available. Members of our team will be involved in a number of ways from presenting sessions to meeting with customers at our booth. MAX is not only a great way to connect with other developers and designers, it’s also a unique way to learn about the direction Adobe will be moving its products in the coming year. MAX is also coming to Milan, Italy, and Tokyo, Japan, in December and January as well. I will be presenting a session at MAX in Milan on monetizing Adobe AIR applications.
Fourth, please be sure and check out our Adobe AIR for Linux Beta and let us know what you think.
Our team is very much looking forward to engaging with the community more closely through this blog. Please be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed and feel free to send us a note by providing feedback to our team through our feedback form. This form is also a great place to send us bugs and feature requests. If you have questions about an AIR application you’re working on, the best place to go is the Adobe AIR forums.
