Wow. This was a great presentation by Adobe Director of Platform Evangelism, Ben Forta. Flex 3 is about to be released publicly and Adobe has gone to great lengths worldwide to promote it and it’s sister product, Air, a new app that works as a desktop application connected to remote servers. Air is something like the Flash player that installs on your machine locally and can accept content locally or remotely. There are already some examples on the Adobe Air pages.
The Flex 3 Builder has until now been available to the public as a beta application. Considering this tour Adobe’s Flex 3 Builder product should be out in a matter of months if not sooner. Also worth checking out are Eclipse and Aptana.
