Welcome

Hi, my name is David Gassner, and I'd like to welcome you to this AIR 1.0 Essential Training video series from lynda.com. AIR, the Adobe integrated runtime from Adobe Systems, has been in development for the last couple of years and with this 1.0 release of the product, developers will now be able to build cross-platform applications, leveraging their existing skills in HTML, Flash and Flex, and deploy them on both Mac and Windows operating systems. The primary goal of this series is to get you acquainted with the product and to show you the options and capabilities and to show you what it feels like to develop in the different environments.

The AIR STK, Flex Builder, Dreamweaver and Flash. In the video series that lynda.com is publishing, you'll be able to dive deeper into these technologies focusing on your development platform. For instance, one of the follow up video series will be totally focused on Flex, allowing Flex developers to dive deeper into this technology and see what kind of applications they can create. Similarly for Flash and HTML developers. You can select a video series that's dedicated to the way you develop applications.

So I hope this training is helpful and that you learn a lot about what the Adobe integrated runtime is and how you use it to build these cross operating system applications.

There are currently no FAQs about AIR Essential Training (2008).
