Web 2.0 Session

These two above sessions are my favourite one 🙂  .. So I simply taken screen-shots. Oh ! oh !..Other sessions were also great .. But I’ve already had some experience with other session demos, so I didn’t concentrate much on that.
1. Flash CS4 essential Tips and Tricks

2. Fireworks CS4 and Dreamweaver CS4 for Web2.0

3. AS2.0 and AS3.0 comparison coverage

He spoke a lot about Dreamweaver CS4 , Fireworks CS4 and Flash CS4 for creating Web 2.o apps. I had a great time by knowing some cool tips and tricks from these two sessions.  He also shared some clear and confined details on Action Script 2.0 (AS2.0) and Action Script 3.0(As3.0), some doubts were cleared from my popping mind .. If you would have attend these sessions, definitely you would have been enjoyed on these products ..
