Second day at Flash on the Beach 08… Flash 10 on IPhone

Second day is finished, but it was very intensive!
I saw lots of interesting session, first of all Mr. Aral Balkan that showed us how to have fun with our work and that we must take time to experiment and try new languages, very interesting session.

Then, my favourite, Adobe Town Hall, where they said: “Yes we are working on Flash 10 on iPhone!”.
I hope that they don’t put a “slim” version without important API like the newest that allow to work with local files with Flash Player in a browser.
I asked also if with AIR 2 they will solved the problem of interaction with others applications embedded on a mobile phone and if it update itselfs without download a new firmware… they said… “Open Screen Project solved the second issue and the first one… yes we are working on this way”.
Great news for mobile developers!

Then I saw Grant Skinner with a cool sesson about  what a Flash developer should know… 

Peter Elst talked about AIR api and show interesting things with Merapi Projects and Adobe AIR… the speech to text sample was amazing!

Lee Brimelow showed us about new Adobe product releases like Flex 4, new features of Flash CS4 and so on, it’s an amazing speaker because he show stuff with a fun.. like a joke… cool!

Tomorrow I will attend the last day, there will be lots of interesting things to take a look… Nicolas session for example… see you tomorrow guys
