I completely forgot to post about this and post a link to the event we hosted at Cal Poly Pomona last month between Adobe and Microsoft. The debate was excellent and we had great attendance for the IECFUG. We where able to get more students and interest in our ColdFusion User Group and hopefully get to recruit some more after an awe inspiring presentation by Kevin Hoyt.

Unfortunately, I won't say anything bad about Microsoft because I won a copy of Vista Ultimate! :) (hmm, what did I do with it?)

If you want to see the video for yourself and see how the debate was laid out see who won, check this link out:

In this presentation they covered more of the capabilities of AIR, how to use it and much more stuff. Mike, covered how to create an AIR package from a simple Flex Application with Flex Builder 3. Flex Builder 3 looks awesome and the ease of creating the applications is just outstanding. You can also download it from the Adobe Labs. The gears and turning... So beware...

Here is the link to the google doc notes.

The guys from Ebay also demoed their application San Dimas where you have a full integration to your desktop from ebay. WOW!! It was an excellent demo and the app just looks great. As soon as I get a link I will update this.
