Northwest Charity Flex Jam @ 360 Flex Conference

The Seattle Adobe Flex User Group (SeaFlex) in conjunction with Adobe Flex Champion Program is sponsoring the first Northwest Charity Flex Jam Event to benefit Washington State9s Northwest Harvest. This event to be held for 42 Hours straight starting August 12-15, 2007 at the Red Lion Hotel in Seattle, WA. This event is happening during the 360 | Flex Seattle Conference and will draw upon the hundreds of Adobe Flex developers who will be attending the conference. Participation is open to anyone who wishes to contribute to the cause.

Northwest Harvest is Washington9s own, and only, statewide hunger relief agency. They supply food free, without dues or fees of any kind, to a network of nearly 300 independent food banks and meal programs throughout the state. They have been selected by SeaFlex as the primary charity to benefit from the Charity Flex Jam. Northwest Harvest in coordination with Seattle-based RedClay Interactive Agency, an Adobe Solutions Partner, will work with SeaFlex to build a Virtual Food Drive Challenge web site using Adobe Flex programming language. Drawing on an all volunteer team of Flex programmers, SeaFlex organizers, plan to complete the application in 36 Hours (the duration of the 360 | Flex Seattle Conference). The final application when completed will be released as an open source project so that other food banks around the country can gain benefit of the application.

The Seattle Adobe Flex User Group, is a local user group of like-minded professional programmers that use or plan to use Adobe Flex. Ali Daniali, SeaFlex User Manager, says "this event is an opportunity for developers to flex their programming muscles, learn new skills from a community of other developers, while giving back to the community." During the Charity Flex Jam, participants will have support from other SeaFlex User Group members, Adobe Flex Community experts, attending conference speakers, and expert Adobe developers from around the United States. Example event mentors include Michael Labriola & Josh Berling from Digital Primates, Jeff Tapper & Mike Nimer from Tapper Nimer and Associates, Micah Bowers and Patrick Keating from BlueFire Productions. Participants of the event will also have opportunities to win prizes that have been donated.
