RIA Developer Summit , Bangalore, India (September 9, 2008)
My second trip to India this year, this time to speak at the RIA Developer Summit hosted by Adobe India. This was an incredible event - two days and two tracks, 300 attendees, and one of the most engaged and interactive crowds I've ever had the privilege of speaking to. I spent some time the first time going over the basics of Flex, AIR, and Data Services. And the next day two students (who installed Flex Builder for the first time the night before) cornered me to show me what they had already built, and to ask a list of questions. It's very gratifying to see that can of response that quickly.
