Guided Activities highlighted at Adobe MAX

After the Blue Man Group performed during the opening general session at Adobe MAX on Tuesday we were treated to a number of demos of new products coming soon from Adobe.  Near the end of all the demos Ben Forta did a demo of creating a Rich Internet Application from a document created in LiveCycle Designer.  Since time was running out this demo got very little stage time but was quite compelling nevertheless. Basically what Ben’s demo showed was that using Adobe products one could take one of the millions of PDFs out there, import it into LiveCycle Designer, specify the layout of the RIA by selecting fields in the Designer, and then rendering the updated XML form template using LiveCycle Forms as a compiled and integrated Flex application.

WOW!!!  Without even having to open Flex Builder a business user will be able to create applications that leverage the Flex Framework from within LiveCycle Designer and have LiveCycle Forms handle the actual generation.

Hanging out at MAX

I have been in Las Vegas for a few days now for the Adobe MAX developer conference and have kept quite busy.  Getting a reliable Internet connection has been difficult at times though.

Since arriving on Sunday I have been working on finalizing my LiveCycle Forms workshop which I am presenting on Tuesday and Thursday.  I also have spent some time at the LiveCycle pavillion (be sure to stop by if you’re at the conference) and attended a few sessions with the rest of my free time.  Oh, I’ve also managed to check out some of the Las Vegas strip and nearby casinos just so you don’t think I haven’t been outside yet.

So, after my first full day at my first Adobe MAX conference I must say that the experience has been very rewarding.  Be able to meet people that use LiveCycle or are interested in using it is great!

For Wednesday I will spending my time between the pavillion hall and will also be atending Matt Butler’s LiveCycle session.  I am also going going to update my workshop content before Thursday based on feedback I received today.
