I was honored to be a guest on RIA Radio during the recent Adobe MAX show. I joined the hosts, Garth Braithwaite, Leif Wells and Zach Stepek, along with fellow guest Kevin Schmidt.

Choose the Compiler options from the list, then add the following arguement
In this case, our application will start with black instead of the default teal.
