Via Ira, Christophe Coenraets, a leading Adobe Technical Evangelist, is coming to Boston to discuss and show the latest capabilities of the new Creative Suite 5.5 which includes Flash Builder 4.5, Flash Catalyst 4.5 and Flex SDK 4.5. All are welcome, food is provided, there will be goodies raffled, and it is all free. Details & signup are at http://www.bostonfug.org.
Although FB4.5 is a dot release, there are some major changes, including much more powerful cross platform development, especially for mobile platforms like Apple, Android & Blackberry. The optimizations for these target platforms appear to be impressive. Come see it in person & try it for yourself.
There are also lots of workflow and SDK changes that affect Developers and Designers. There will be ample time for questions and demonstration. Christophe is a very hands on presenter with deep knowledge of the product. He frequently answers questions by building an example on the spot.
This will be a great session. A full agenda will be posted shortly, but to give you a sense of what will be covered check out these:
