I did my "AIR Beyond the Basics" talk at Flash on the Beach on Tuesday and was pretty happy with the turnout -- especially since I was up against a jam session with Keith Peters, Joa Ebert, Ralph Hauwert, Carlos Ulloa, Mario Klingemann and Andre Michelle ;) The internet connection unfortunately failed on me and had to skip over a couple of cool demo's -- think I'll do a recording soon walking you through the various code samples and post it here. If you want to give it a try yourself in the meanwhile you can download the source code from the link below.

Example code includes:

Network monitoring Windowing API HTML engine FileSystem API SQLite databases Drag 'n Drop Clipboard access Update API EncryptedLocalStore Launch AIR app from an AIR app Merapi - Launch native application Merapi - Text to speech

Feel free to get in touch if you've got any questions about these AIR APIs and I'll be happy to help you out.
