Cairngorm 3 – Revised Guidelines and Core Principles

We’ve revised the guidelines section. In my opinion, one very significant new area are the Core Principles. These are principles that we feel are crucial to adhere to when developing enterprise RIAs. They are also easier to agree upon between teams even if some areas (such as an IoC framework choice) might be more difficult to agree upon. Looking for commonality between teams can help bring more consistency eventually.

Additionally, don’t forget the MAX presentations of Francois Le Droff and Yaniv De Ridder; who will touch on build automation and the impact of multi-screen on client side architecture. Afterwards, I hope we can add some outputs of it to Cairngorm.

Cairngorm 3 – Migration to Open@Adobe, Library Updates and MAX Presentations

Over the past months Cairngorm 3 has moved to a new location, the new Open@Adobe space at SourceForge. Last week we’ve released new versions from our navigation, module, integration, observer and popup libraries. The how-to documents linked through the libraries page show what’s changed and add further documentation.

If you’re at MAX, make sure you checkout the session from Francois Le Droff and Yaniv De Ridder, who will present technical insights from a large-scale RIA project built inside Adobe, which uses Cairngorm 3 guidelines, tools and libraries.

Additionally, Xavier Agnetti and Xavi Beumala will discuss FlexPMD, which is a crucial tool we use in our projects. More tools we’ve found important are linked through our tools section.
