After much anticipation, my colleague Craig Taylor and I delivered a session entitled “RIA in Education: Working Smarter Not Harder”.

Official Description:

Learn how Miami University architects RIAs for education using Flash Catalyst, Flash Builder, and Adobe AIR. This session features an overview of models of development and looks under the hood at a few higher education applications built in Flash Catalyst and Flex Builder (the precursor to Flash Builder) and delivered with AIR.
