Our next Denver meeting is going to be huge.

Ryan Stewart is going to talk about the many ways that Flex and PHP work together. He'll cover a quick introduction to Flex, Adobe's application Framework for the Flash Platform and talk about the data visualization features and tooling that make it easy for PHP developers to get started. He will talk about why Flex and PHP go so well together while introducing you to Flex's data visualization components for charting and mapping as well as how to use advanced PHP features like sockets to create real-time applications. Finally he will show off how PHP developers can use some of Flash's advanced services like real-time whiteboarding or video chat and talk about building Android applications with Flash and PHP. You'll walk away with a lot more information about where Flex can be a good fit for PHP developers and what you need to start communicating between the two.

Ryan Stewart is a Platform Evangelist for Adobe Systems. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics he started on the Flash Platform by building eLearning rich Internet applications in Flex 1.5 and ColdFusion 7 for the Wharton School of Business. He is a long time blogger and had a prominent blog on ZDNet where he covered all sides of rich Internet applications. He has spoken at a number of industry conferences including Web 2.0 Expo, Adobe MAX, 360|Flex, SXSW, and Web Design World. When not working with the latest Adobe technology you can find him in Seattle where he enjoys making beer, mountaineering, and spending as much time as possible in the outdoors. You can email him at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or find his blog at http://blog.digitalbackcountry.com

I'll post more information later on, but mark the date. This is not a FRPUG meeting you'll want to miss.

Until next time,
David Stockton
