MAX Session Spotlight: Developing Well-Behaved Android Applications using Adobe AIR

Last week I caught up with David Knight, a developer on the Adobe AIR team, and Renaun Erickson, a platform evangelist at Adobe, to discuss their upcoming performance talk at Adobe MAX. The talk, titled "Developing Well-Behaved Android Applications using Adobe AIR", will cover a number of important topics related to how you can optimize your applications for mobile with a special focus on Android and iOS devices.

For those developers planning on attending Adobe MAX, be sure to add this session to your schedule. David and Renaun’s talk will be on Tuesday, October, 26th, from 4:30PM – 5:30PM.

Also, I am often asked where developers can find additional information from Adobe on how to optimize mobile applications. One excellent resource is the Optimizing Performance for the Flash Platform guide from our documentation team. It covers a number of critical topics related to performance including:

  • Conserving memory
  • Minimizing CPU usage
  • ActionScript 3.0 performance
  • Rendering performance
  • Optimizing network interaction
  • Working with media
  • SQL database performance
  • Benchmarking and deploying
