More Flex Camps This Summer …

There are a few Flex Camp events coming up that you should know about. The first is in Michigan, where the Flex user group is organizing a two day Flex Camp event with a hands on Flex training event for the second day. The event starts at 9:00 AM on Wednesday July 30th, and ends at 12 Noon on Thursday July 31st. Registration is $25 for one day, or $40 for both days. Registration is limited to 150 people, so you’ll want to register soon.

There’s also a Flex Camp event happening in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on August 21st, from 5:30 – 9:30 PM. There are 3 presentations from local Ottawa companies, and 3 demos from companies using Flex. Again, registration is limited, so you’ll want to register for Flex Camp Ottawa. (Its free!)

If you’re interested in hosting your own Flex Camp event, you can learn more about hosting your own Flex Camp event at flex.org.

Contribute to the Flex SDK

Now that the source for the Flex SDK has been available for 3 months I’ve already seen plenty of folks taking advantage and building cool projects. But I believe there are probably plenty of people who would like to make some contributions and don’t know where to start. JIRA to the rescue! We’ve set up a list of bugs that we think are perfect candidates for folks from the community to look into, just go find a bug that looks interesting and start fixing (put a comment in the bug to say you’re looking into it).

Additionally we’ve got a little incentive program going! For every 3 patches that we accept, we’ll buy an Adobe-related book for you off of your Amazon wish list. And for the first two people who submit 10 patches that we accept, we’re going to pay for their MAX ticket!

Please check out the Flex 3 Contributions page for more information.
