Presenting at Lunch 2.0 at Adobe on Friday Sep 14

Come on by Adobe’s SF office this Friday from 4-6 pm for Lunch 2.0 (lunch at 4-6pm? wtf?). I’ll be showing off some cool Flex/AIR stuff (read: bouncing tilez!). I think the whole event is pretty informal, so come on by and hang out.

Side note for alcoholics: I asked if there was going to be beer and I was told there will be pizza. So I’m a little worried about the booze situation. Dear Adobe: you have set the bar very high with the past Flex events. It is now expected that we will walk in, get handed free software worth hundreds of dollars, and have all-you-can drink beer. If not, the Microsoft Silverlight Dev Camp will have drinks from 7-10 pm that same night. AND they might be taking people out for drinks after 10. I say we all walk from Adobe to the MS event after the Adobe one finishes. We can all wear Flex jackets, roll over with a hundred guys, and challenge the Silverlight devs to a street brawl. At the moment the Adobe rsvp list is 178 deep, while the MS one only has 89. We can take ’em.

All joking aside, if people actually do want to go from the Adobe event to the MS event, I might be down to walk over. I’m technology agnostic when it comes to free booze.

  • There's a lot of buzz about Silverlight 2.0 right now, and people are expecting some big announcements at MIX soon. But where the hell are the cool Silverlight demos? Offline support would bring Silverlight closer to competition with AIR, and it's looking like SL 2.0 is going to be an…

  1. Hey, I came across this post while looking for help with fixing Microsoft Silverlight. I have recently switched internet browser from Chrome to IE. Just recently I seem to have a problem with loading websites that have Microsoft Silverlight. Everytime I go on a website that needs Microsoft Silverlight, my computer doesn’t load and I get a “npctrl.dll” error. I can’t seem to find out how to fix the problem. Any aid getting Microsoft Silverlight to work is greatly appreciated! Thanks
