Sven Claar has made it his personal goal to use Adobe technologies like Flex and Adobe AIR to cure the "chronic diseases" of client applications. Sven has worked as a Flex consultant since the initial release of Flex. With over 10 years' experience building clients, he shares this knowledge with customers and the community to engage people in building expressive, rich front ends. Sven manages Flex Squad Central Europe and has written many Flex articles for magazines, published training DVDs, and has hosted many workshops that bring Flex and Adobe AIR technologies to varied audiences.
