Web 2.0 seminar
Recently I did a web 2.0 seminar together with my colleagues, Mark Szulc and Andrew Spaulding. It was great fun. And I have to say Andrew was awesome. He was a coding machine. I have never seen anyone code like him with such confidence and posture when in front of a large audience. Sure he made mistakes like typos but he was so calm and read the debugger info and then made the correction. No sweat.
Anyway I was asked to do a recording of my part and I have done that and they are now for public viewing. Below are the details:
Flash Video (1 hour): http://mmse.acrobat.com/p12964264
The session highlighted a couple of examples of how websites used Flash Video effectively to communicate with their customers. Two deployment mechanisms were discussed: progressive download and streaming (via Flash Media Server). That was followed by a demo as to how to build a Flash app that streaming videos from the streaming server.
Flash Mobile (45 min): http://mmse.acrobat.com/p87978896
The sessions started with a few Flash Lite examples for mobile devices like the Nokia Symbian S60 series and the Windows Mobile 5 phones. Followed by the demo using Flash Professional 8 with the Flash Lite 2.1 authoring update. Testing of the content using the built-in phone emulator as well as the new and yet-to-come Adobe Device Central.
Spry Framework for AJAX (45 min): http://mmse.acrobat.com/p23756668/
The benefits of AJAX application were explained. Followed by the examples from the Spry Framework download. Then it was the demo that built a simple AJAX application that loaded various xml files and displayed the result in a sortable table.
