Presentation for cross mobile development through AIR
Adobe AIR has grown to be one of the best cross platform development SDK. While that last statement may sound like jibberish to designers, our aim in 2 weeks time is to set the dots clearly on the i's to help designers get their grooves on development. This lecture may be useful to developers as well.
Michel Assaf of Black Labs has graciously taken the time to do a demo on how to get started (hands on) into taking a Photoshop design and bringing to life via Adobe AIR into an iOS and Android Mobile Application. The end result will give you a clear idea of the workflow of a developer and the details of what one needs to look for as they develop.
We will also suggest supperb resources to go and learn more via premium online video tutorials, and sites to add to your RSS feeds.
To register you may simply send us your name and number of persons accompanying you to 03 973 234.
This meetup is sponsored by Mobile Development company Underlabs.
Event details: August Friday 10th @ 18:00 - Ain Saadéh, Imm Sawan

It's a great time to be a developer!
After a vibrant open mic between HTML5 & Flex/Flash as a meduim to get our artwork & application across. The final points to take note of are that use the best technology for the purpose you need.
Mobile Development has change a lot the skill set a developer requires to be relevent in this day & age.
Mobile First is the Moto among industry leaders & the topic of our next meeting on Friday February 17th, 2012. Due to the lack of beers last time, we have been in touch with Almaza and have promised us to provide more beer this time around (we emphasized the need of 'quality beer' for quality time, not to mention with the help of Ogilvy).
We will also discuss the possibility of organizing a Development Marathon Weekend in Lebanon!
Flash & HTML5 go hand in hand.
Though HTML5 isn't a plugin to the browser. and currently, incompatibility implentations among different browsers, makes you wonder what they mean by standards.
Currently developing Apps with similar rapidity ans ease of skinning as in Flex & Flas Catalyst, and those advantages are currently lacking in ease and flexibility in HTML5.
Flash in some cases (HTML5 does bad in others) are a CPU hog, apparent in Mobiles such as iOS (ex: a push view) makes our open mic this September 30th, a topic much anticipated.
This meeting will be an open mic among peers, representing IT from Ogily MENA (lenience: HTML5), Leo Burnett Beirut (lenience: Flash) and various workshops, we welcome all forms of developers with knowledge in both technologies, and neophytes that could judge for themselves.
