Greg Wilson tweeted that Tour de Flex, a desktop application for exploring Flex and Adobe AIR capabilities and resources, was recently updated to include additional Adobe AIR 2 samples for mass storage device detection, DNS, and network information.
If you are not familiar with Tour de Flex, it is a fantastic resource for discovering code samples. The application is free, powered by Adobe AIR and used by Flex developers all over the world (check out this amazing data visualization that displays global usage of the application).
Both the web and desktop versions of Tour de Flex were recently updated to include AIR 2 samples. If you are not familiar with Tour de Flex, it is an extremely valuable resource for learning about Adobe platform technologies including Flex, Flash and Adobe AIR.
The new AIR 2 examples include:
- Global error handler
- Open with default application
- Native Process
- Socket API
For additional information on these examples, see Holly Schinsky’s blog post. Also, Greg Wilson informs me that more examples are coming soon. If there are specific examples you would like to see, please leave us a comment and we will relay your requests back to the Tour de Flex team.
Christian Cantrell, a member of the AIR team, also created an extremely valuable blog post that provides links to a number of articles, videos, blog posts and samples related to AIR 2.
