I have had the pleasure of attending several of Jonathans local speaking engagements and his presentations are always top-notch, with excellent preparation, materials and examples. If you are interested in the topic in even the slightest, I highly encourage you to get more information by swining over to Jonathans site . His Flash work in the area of device simulation and component based development is fantastic.
