The RDF navigator by Franz was helpful in illustrating the types of navigating functionality that (RDF) developers find useful when trying to understand their data sets. Adobe's introduction to Flex was a perfect mix of detail and overview for someone with a programming background but no web programming background. I had never considered using Flex in my applications, but the testimonials of simplicity and performance from the folks at the meetup have changed the stereotype that I've held. Since Flex can deploy web or desktop with an almost identical code base, it is definitely something I will consider in the future. The last demo (put together in previous few days) was the perfect combination of semantic web/linked data and Flex.
