Join us at Adobe MAX!
Every year at Adobe MAX we bring our special brand of community to the party in the form of 360|MAX!
360|MAX is all about the Adobe Flex Community. Sessions are by community developers and Adobe folks.
|1:00pm – 2:00pm||Mobile GIS Applications||Mansour Raad|
|How to build web and mobile GIS mapping applications using Flex with real life applications on Android and iOS-come see how MVC patterns are truly applied and how Flex is hacked with Kinect for mapping and track OBL with ARDrone|
|2:00pm – 3:00pm||How to get touch events to play nice with Flex components||Ryan Frishberg|
|Have you ever tried to add a swipe event to an item renderer only to have the List scroll as well? Come learn how to fix situations like this by checking out what happens under the hood in Flex when touch events are received. Learn about TouchInteractionEvent and how Flex components coordinate with each other to respond appropriately.|
|3:00pm – 4:00pm||Making your stuff get from here to there||Nick Kwiatkowski|
|Nick will be talking about how to transfer and communicate data with servers. There are a dizzying amount of ways you can communicate with servers such as HTTP, SOAP, REST, RemoteObjects, BlazeDS, LiveCycle, P2P and TCP Sockets. Learn about all the different ways you can have your Flex, AIR or Mobile based app connect with servers (or other peers) and push and pull data. Learn which methods are most efficient and reliable for which use cases. We will be providing code samples for all the above methods so you can implement them in your new projects without using wizards.|
|4:00pm – 5:00pm||The lost art of latency managment||Gary Rogers|
|In a world of ever increasing data being crammed into various platforms and UIs, most especially on mobile, it seems that speed and performance are frequently taking a back seat. This session will discuss and demonstrate simple steps which can be used to make sure latency does not creep into your mobile application. Tips for Flex, html and native will be discussed.|
|Open House 6:00-7:00||Something truly awesome and bad ass. Don’t miss it!||Michael Labriola & Michelle Yaser|
|Open House 7:00-8:00||Stealth: Rethinking Component Design||Tyler Wright|
|The User Interface is changing. A better breed of components is required to live in a mobile, multi-screen world. As a commercial component framework, the Stealth SDK is uniquely engineered to make your UI smaller, faster and easier to design to meet the demands of next-generation apps. Come see these components first hand as we uncover the architectural concepts that set Stealth apart. Realize how easy it is to build your game or mobile UI in either Flash Pro or MXML.|
|1:00pm – 2:00pm||Native Mobile Apps without AIR||Rob Rusher|
|Yes, building native mobile applications can be done with Flex and ActionScript. But more importantly it can also be done without Adobe AIR. And you can deploy these applications to Android, iOS, Symbian and Windows Mobile. It’s called OpenPlug and it works with the Flex SDK. BYOL (Mac or PC) and you’ll deploy an app in a few minutes.|
|2:00pm – 3:00pm||Focusing on the Spark DataGrid||Drew Shefman|
|Got an occasionally editable cell in a grid? What about some special hot key navigation through your data? Drew Shefman has spent months tackling focus and navigation issues in the AdvancedDataGrid and has ported this knowledge over to the Spark Datagrid. The good news, it is MUCH easier and more robust then the AdvancedDataGrid, the bad news, there are still some non-obvious hoops to jump through.|
|3:00pm – 4:00pm||FlexMonkey, the Test Maker||Mike Wells|
|4:00pm – 5:00pm||SPOON (Project Spoon)||Garth Braithwaite|
|5:00pm – 6:00pm||Real-time Programming with Arduino using WebSockets||Justin Mclean|
|9:00am – 10:00am||Developing Native Mobile Mapping Applications using MapQuest||Roman Hardgrave & Darin Weakley|
|MapQuest has a streamlined mobile mapping API for Flash Builder 4.5 to develop native mobile applications on iOS, Android and Blackberry Tablet. Representatives from MapQuest’s Flash Mapping Product and Development Teams will walk through the features of the API, how to use it and demonstrate it running live on a variety of devices.|
|10:00am – 11:00am||Mastering NativeProcess, the power to Execute (other applications)||Jonathan Rowny|
|You’re writing an AIR app that needs to put files on a remote server after encoding a video file to a chosen format. That sounds like a lot of work, especially if you want it running on different operating systems. Believe it or not, it’s very easy! Using AIR’s NativeProcess you can execute any application with standard in/out and take advantage of the work others have done.From executing custom PHP scripts within AIR to running SSH commands, the power is yours.In this session you will learn:
In this session you will see:
|11:00am – 12:00pm||Flex Mobile + PayPal API = Payments Anywhere||Sidney Maestre|
|Lightweight web API’s have exploded in the last few years. Payments, advertising and analytics services all have web API’s that are easily integrated into mobile applications. In this session, you’ll get a close look at the PayPal API and how it can be integrated into Flex mobile apps.|
|1:00pm – 2:00pm||Big Brother is Watching You: Multiscreen, geotagged videoconferencing with LCCS||Joe Rinehart|
|LiveCycle Collaboration Services makes it incredibly easy to embed realtime collaboration components into your Flex applications, including video streams, whiteboards, and custom “pushed” data types. Learn how to combine LCCS with mobile AIR capabilities to create a realtime mapping application with live video steams and geotracking.|
|2:00pm – 3:00pm||Flex and Ruby on Rails||Daniel Wanja|
|Join us for a session focusing on Flex applications powered by Ruby on Rails. Learn how to set up your own Rails application and the different ways to connect your Flex application via REST to your Rails server using advanced Rails features like nested attributes, nested routes exploring how to best use several frameworks, like active resource, bulk-api and maybe even RestfulX. We’ll go beyond the standard Rails stack and explore how to leverage Flex using Redis and MongoDB, an advanced key-value store and document database. We’ll also demonstrate advanced Ruby techniques like compressing large data sets that will benefit your Flex application.|
360|MAX is a great way to present at MAX, without the process involved :)
The only guideline for submissions, is you have to be attending MAX, we aren’t given passes to give to speakers.
