AIR Challenge: 14 air apps

On the 18th of June, we invited 14 teams (each composed of a developer and a designer) in Paris for the Adobe AIR 24H Challenge. I unveiled the topic of the challenge, “un AIR de famille”. They had to figure out how an Adobe AIR application could potentially help a family. Some teams represented interactive agencies (SQLi, Digitas, Tequila Rapido, Dagobert…) and Flash agencies (IQ12, Creaktif…), others were freelancers or students. After 24 hours, the teams had developed 14 AIR applications. They coded without any pause, or any nap. Robots!!! I’ve recorded a video that presents the 14 applications. Altough the big majority of the applications are in French, you can download and install them as they are all stored on this website:

If you don’t understand a single word of French, then you can still try Familiar, a fantastic AIR client for your Flickr account. This AIR 2.0 application leverages the new Native Process API, the Multi-touch API of Flash Player 10.1 and the USB volume detection. You can also give a try to Familink, a light “Connect-like” application developed by Dagobert. Funambulle, by Aerys, provides an impressive 3D-chat experience.

The event was also an online success, with more than 3000 visitors, more than 800 live tweets, and a live video experience powered by LiveCycle Collaboration Service.

  1. Awesome! I wish I could participate in such an event in the future… maybe there is some potential to do some roadshow based on this theme? :)

    The apps are really great!
