It seems it’s been a while since we have posted any reviews, so I thought I would make mention of some reviews we have coming soon.

TagGerr is reading The Essential Guide to Flash CS4 AIR Development. This book not only covers the essentials of using Flash with AIR (and AIR with Flash), but also shows you how to extend application functionality in new ways. once you’ve got Flash on the desktop, you’re no longer constrained by the limitations of running inside a web browser. You’ll have access to the local desktop file system, and AIR adds SQLite functionality for native database support. And just as Flash animations have a consistent look and feel across browsers, AIR allows you to create applications that work consistently across operating systems—Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Monnok is reading Flex 3, A Beginner’s Guide is an easy-to-follow, fast-paced tutorial that allows you to fully grasp the fundamentals, including MXML, ActionScript, Flex Builder, states, transitions, and behaviors. You’ll learn how to customize your applications with styles, skins, and themes; access remote data using the XML HTTP Service Request; profile and debug your applications; and manage media assets.
Finally Utahcon is polishing up a review on Flexible Web Design: Creating Liquid and Elastic Layouts with CSS, currently reading for review the Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Project Management.
Past those four reviews we have a lot of books we are cranking through, so we can make sure you know what books are more important in this ever changing field of IT, programming, and all things technology.
