First, we gave you multiple chances to receive a free copy of Jack Herrington’s pocket guide to Flex 3 (the dead-tree version). All you had to do was read an article or two about developing with Adobe Flex and take a short quiz.
Now we’re doing the same thing with Adobe AIR. We’ve just published the first of two articles on building applications with AIR, Learn Adobe AIR, Part 1: Build A Note Storage App, by Akash Mehta. Clocking in at over 4,000 words, Akash gives you a comprehensive tour of the AIR platform, taking you through how to interact with a database, manage events, create XML-driven dropdown menus and more.
And like before, we’re also making the book available as a free PDF download, so if you miss out on the print version, be sure to grab it in digital form!
