After the XMas break is now finally over and summer has arrived in Wellington, we’re starting the monthly meetings of the Flash Platform User Group again. Actually we were known as the Flex User Group but went through a bit of self-finding and re-branding and the outcome is a broader focus on the overall Flash Platform. That also includes Flash, AIR, Flash Catalyst and associated things like the Text Layout Framework or Stratus.
The next (and first meeting in 2010) will be held at Natcoll Design Technology in Wellington (thanks to Brett Taylor, who’s the head of department for Interactive Design and Web Development at Natcoll and helped a lot to set this up). Topics will be Stratus, Adobe’s peer-to-peer framework for RTMP communication and Skinning in Styling in Flex 4. Both will be 30 min-ish long introductory presentations, no previous knowledge of either topic will be required.
This is the agenda:
- Introduction in Stratus (Ross Phillips)
- The basics of skinning and styling in Flex 4 (Kai Koenig)
