Last Night’s PHP UG Meeting

Thanks everyone who came out to last night’s PHP Users Group meeting – we had the best turnout so far! Lee Brimelow, Platform Evangelist with Adobe, gave a great presentation on Flash, Flex, AMFPHP, and the upcoming Zend_Amf. I thought his presentation was refreshingly straightforward and honest. I have several reservations with using Flash myself and he addressed those issues early on in his presentation. Those issues are primarily search engine issues, accessibility, and “breaking the web model.” However, Adobe has not fully answered those questions so I still won’t be using Flash except for very specific situations such as video and audio. Regardless, it was an informative presentation and interesting discussion.
