SotR… Rocks! first day impressions

Here we are! I’m at Peter’s session about AIR but it’s the final session, after this we have Bird of fathers.

First day is very interesting, I meet very skilled and strong developers like Nico and also I have a great lunch with Neil, Peter and so on.

Atmosphere is very fresh, Edinburgh is an amazing but very relax city, I love it so much.
Event starts with Ben Forta and Adam Lehman that make a keynote about Coldfusion and integration with Flex, LCDS and AIR, very cool!

First session of my day is Working with OOP and CFML, Matt Woodward shows us why developers must work with OOP and which are benefits.
Then I follow Nico session about google analytics, I learn that old counters are better than analytics… no that’s a joke! He shows the true powerful of this google solution and give us some news about new features (native integration with flex and air… cool!)
And finally now Peter give us an overview of AIR API with a lots of samples, great work Peter!!!

If you are plan which event to follow next year, take in consideration Scotch on the Rocks, very friendly and fantastic atmosphere!

Road to Scotch on the Rocks

Yes guys, 3 weeks and it starts! I booked my hotel room and my flight a month ago and now I’m making material for my session.

I’ll talk the last day (Friday at 10.30 AM) about “Manage Flash Lite Data with Flex and Air”, when I propose this session I think that it could be very interesting to view the power of Flash Platform, in fact I’ll show a real case history that I’m working on now and explain how to create a little CMS with Flex and AIR for Flash Lite contents.
Flash Platform is too amazing, you can develop from mobile to desktop and not different application but a unique application that collaborate together.
You can find great speakers there like Ben Forta, Peter Elst, Neil Webb, Charlie Arehart, Mark DrewAndrew Shorten so there are all elements to make a great event!  

I’m sure to meet a lots of new strong developers and designers and I’ll spend a fantastic time in Edinburgh.
For more information about the event or to take part, please see Scotch on the Rocks web site. 

See you there guys!

Finally, I can’t miss it, I see an introduction on Cairngorm by Neil Webb (you rock man!) very cool session and so funny preso, I love it!

first day at 360Flex Europe..my impressions…

It’s just finished this long day, I slept 2 hours to finish my preso and samples, I hope that people enjoy my Flex BitmapData session!
I’ll put preso and samples in the next few days in this blog, so take a look everyday guys!

There weren’t a lots of people at 360Flex, but I met a lots of strong developers for all over the world, there were great share moments and all speakers help toghether to make a better session ( I love so much this atmosphere).
I’m so glad that a lots of italian developers and companies are lost this cool appointment to know better Flex and AIR technologies!

In fact you could talk with Adobe people (Evangelist, marketing people and so on) and with cool speakers that help you to understand better the power of flash platform! I hope tomorrow I can see more people here!
This evening all speakers go out with Adobe people to have dinner and to know us better and talk about Adobe softwares and strategies, that’s cool!

I’ll put also new event photos in my Flickr account, so please take a look sometimes!
