>> Join in this BYOL (bring your own laptop) lab to learn how to get started developing for ColdFusion 9 in the official ColdFusion IDE, ColdFusion Builder 2.  After we have installed ColdFusion 9 and ColdFusion Builder 2, we'll see how easy yet powerful ColdFusion is as we begin building rich, dynamic web applications. There are no hardware prerequisites for this lab, however, if you want to get a jump on things, download and install ColdFusion 9, ColdFusion 9 Update 1, and ColdFusion Builder 2.

>> Course 2:
>> Building Your First Mobile App with Adobe Flash Builder
>> The latest releases of Flash Builder and Flex are all about mobile. For the first time it is possible to create high performance mobile Flex apps across Android and IOS. This hands-on-Lab session (bring your own laptop) will take you through the basics of building and deploying applications on to these devices. The in's and out's of the framework will be discussed, as well as how to properly target both Android and IOS with these tools..
