onAIR Tour : Leg 2 Agendas And Speakers Updated

Originally posted on onair.adobe.com blog.

We have just updated the event agendas, and have also posted the list of all of the speakers for the second leg of the bus tour.

Just as with the first leg, we have a pretty impressive list of speakers.

We also have sessions by effectiveUI, Akamai, Yahoo! Developers Network and Salesforce.com.

Bus outside of AIR Camp Portland

Some of the new sessions include ColdFusion Powered AIR Applications (Ben Forta), Introduction to Adobe AIR Flex Components (Chafic Kazoun) and Introduction to the Embedded Database API (Christian Cantrell).

We will be posting a more extensive write up of leg 1, but one of the things we learned was that the all day / night events were too long (over 12 hours!). While we still had a ton of people hanging around at the end of the night, everyone was simply beat. So, for leg two we have shorted the day events to end earlier in order to make it more manageable for speakers and participants.

Here is a list of the cities the bus will be visiting during leg 2:

We are also make a side trip (a 16 hour one) to Raleigh, for a user group meeting / mini AIR Camp on Saturday, August 18th. We will post more info about that shortly.

This leg has some of the largest and smallest venues and events, so it should be an interesting contrast between the larger and smaller cities.

If you haven’t registered yet, make sure to register as soon as possible. It helps us plan for the right amount of people (i.e. make sure we order enough beer), and ensures you wont get locked out if any of the events sell out.

Finally, if you are in one of the cities, help us get the word out by blogging it, or pinging your friends. You can find some graphics for the tour to add to a blog post in the code repository.

Bumper Stickers on Bus

Finally #2, we need bumper stickers for the bus, so if you are attending one of the events and happen to have a bumper sticker for the city, make sure to bring it to us. (We already have stickers for Portland, Vancouver, and Texas).
