On January 23rd Adobe Evangilist, Ben Forta, of Adobe spoke on Flex 3 and Air in front of over 120 developers and designers in Cary NC. Ben remarked that it was the largest group he has presented to on the tour so far. Excitement was in the air, pun intended, as Ben went through Flex 3 features and inspired the imaginations of developers with Air.
The meeting was held at the offices of Railinc, Cary NC, and was a collaboration of the Adobe user groups in the area. (Triangle User Experience (TUE), TACFUG, and RDAUG group) According to Ed Sullivan of Adobe the attendance numbers for this location was the highest recorded so far and demonstrated to Adobe that the Triangle is a hot bed for Flex and Air.
