Last day at FotB

Flash on the Beach finished yesterday, what’s an amazing event, I know a lots of cool developers from Australia, Belgium and England.

So next year, FotB starts in the end of Semptember and I hope to see a lots of this guys again. Now I’m coming back home where I put online all FotB photos.

So keep in touch guys, because I’ll publish new development experience in this blog!

FotB, the second day

Second day at FotB was better than first!
If English people said: “God save the Queen”, I say: “God save Mario Klingemann“… he is a big geek and a showman!
You can find Mario’s preso directly in quasimondo.com (his blog), so Mario show us how to use BitmapData class and create very cool effect. It was an amazing session and it registered SOLD OUT.

Another big preso was Ted Patrick‘s session where he explain us the worst practice to use Flex! Ted is a big speaker, in few slides he show us what we could do to create solid and good projects, very interesting.

So now I’m starting the last day here… talking with Mr. Davey, that organizes FotB, he said me that next year FotB probably starts in the end of September, so take a space in your agenda and come in Brighton!

First day at FOTB

First day at FOTB was fantastic, speakers prepared great session, in particular inspire sessions are crazy!!!
Joshua Davis is an amazing speaker so cool presentation!

But another amazing thing is after the first inspire session where out of Pavillion Theatre the guys of Plug-in Media create a flash installation where you can interact with and when you move yourself starts from some areas one or more fireworks, very crazy!

After this we came to Brighton Casino and we gambled and eat all night!

When I’ll come back in Italy, I’ll create a Flickr account and put in all FOTB and Chicago MAX photos there.

And now I’ll start a new FOTB day! What amazing event!

Obviusly in this blog I report my impressions about this event and share ideas or knowledge.
So stay tuned!

Sneak peek at MAX

If anybody tell me, I don’t believe it!

Yes, Sneak Peek in MAX is fantastic and amazing, it gives us what the Adobe future will be!
They will integrate C and C++ on Flash, they expan Fireworks and we could create layout for RIA and compile them into Fireworks for Flex or AIR, we could customize with Flash Lite OS of phones, we’ll have new algoritms to resize images, we can integrate an SWF file into a PDF file, we could use inDesgin Server to populate master page made by inDesign and so more!

An incredible sneak peek, very amazing!
When I come back in Italy I’ll organize a seminar to explain all this features in the end of October, more information you’d find at Let’s course blog

Second day at MAX and Thermo is alive!

Yes my friends! Thermo is alive, it’s a great and powerful tool for designer that could create interaction in RIA.
In fact you could import Photoshop layout and choose what layers come in Thermo and then transform this object in Flex component like a list or a textInput.
It’s amazing! I’ve no words to describe this new software!

Kevin Lynch doesn’t tell us when Thermo will be outside, but he thinks to communicate in next months…

So then we take a look at new projects that Adobe are approaching like Share or Cocomo, that’s incredible and fantastic new tools that they launch in 2008.

Also they announce new software roadmap; in fact at the begininng of 2008 we will use Flex 3 and AIR, I’m so exciting!
What a big MAX!

Adobe MAX: first day!

First day at Max is amazing!
In general session Adobe presents Flash Player 10 with a lots of cool features like text API implementation, 3D API implementation and new Filters API for new runtime effects.

New DevCenter area in Adobe site is well organized and so easy to search articles or tutorials about our favourite technology.

They present also great AIR application and with a lots of cool features, in fact they release in labs.adobe.com new AIR BETA version, AIR ROCKS!
