Session Description: 

Lecture-style (what can we say, we’re Uni professors) about building Drupal-powered Flash and Flex websites that support deep-linking, good SEO, and use progressive enhancement techniques so that full HTML content can be available for those who don’t have Flash enabled using the SWFAddress module. Beyond just all-Flash websites we will also cover ways to integrate Flash/Flex in standards-compliant ways to enhance a website while still being maintainable by Drupal.
