AIR for Flex Developers is David Gassner's follow-up to his AIR Essential Training course, and takes a deeper look at how Flex Builder 3 and the Flex 3 framework can be used to build cross-system desktop applications with Adobe AIR. David examines every point of integration with the host operating system, including working with the local file system, creating and maintaining local databases, and managing native windows and menus. He also shares tips for how to configure the development environment, and how to publish and update finished AIR applications. Example files accompany the course.
