Learning Adobe Air
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
I am planning to learn more about [play with] Adobe Air in my spare time over the next few months.
The Adobe AIR runtime lets developers use proven web technologies to build rich Internet applications that deploy to the desktop and run across operating systems.
- You’ll need the Adobe Air runtime which will allow you to install Air applications.
- The Air SDK will provide tools for building Air applications in a development environment
Both of these are available on the Adobe Air Tools page.
Optionally, you may also want to get some help from other applications. I’ll be using the Adobe Air extension for Dreamweaver which allows you to work with Air applications within Dreamweaver. Other tools that you may want to consider include Aptana Studio which has an Air plugin.
Things to consider
This is the tutorial I have been looking at. Pretty simple for the moment but you have to start somewhere!

Spare time booked up!
All in all, I reckon I have a busy few months ahead but I hope to learn a few new things along the way….
