Join LAdobe on Wednesday night, March 7th at 7pm at our newest venue, the ING Direct Cafe at 11175 Santa Monica Blvd in West Los Angeles. Parking is available in the garage located next to the cafe and the Tesla dealership. Please keep in mind, there will be a lot of traffic at that location, so plan accordingly.


For this event, we are teaming up with the LA Flex User Group for a special evening with Adobe’s Flex Team as they are traveling across North America this month promoting the virtues of using Adobe Flex and the Flash Platform. This event will clarify any changes to Flex and Flash including updates on the runtimes and tooling. Additionally, the sessions will educate folks about the Apache process and what it takes for Flex Software Development Kit (SDK), as a project within the Apache Software Foundation, to continue to thrive. These meetings will be the best place to get accurate and up-to-date information about anything related to Flex.
