Adobe MAX Online

I am unable to attend Adobe MAX in person this year but I am going to be sure to still participate by using Adobe MAX Online. 

Adobe MAX Online will allow me to view the live streaming keynotes on Oct 5 & 6 to get the latest design & development trends.

After 8 P.M. PST each day, from October 5th to 7th, I will also be able to see the top session of the day from each track: Design, Develop, and Envision. I’ll be able to view these sessions on demand on MAX Online and join the buzz by participating in the extended Twitter conversation.

Finally I plan to check back on Sunday, October 11th, for all of the sessions available on demand.

Participants will also be able to connect with the community during the webcast through twitter at #adobemaxgs.

Meet me at MAX

There is only a little over a week to go before Adobe’s biggest developer conference ever kicks off and I will be presenting there once again this year.

Adobe MAX 2007 is taking place in Chicago this year from September 30 to October 3. This year’s conference is shaping up to be bigger and better in all aspects than any previous year. If you are a developer using any of Adobe’s products this is definately the must attend event of the year.

If you are already planning to attend MAX I would like to point out some of the exciting sessions being presented around the LiveCycle suite of products.

First, I will plug my own session that will cover LiveCycle Forms ES and its new form guide feature. Over the past year I have been on the form guide team in Ottawa busily creating a tool for LiveCycle Designer ES called Guide Builder. This tool is a Flex-based desktop application that provides an extremely easy interface for creating dynamic and interactive form guides. Without giving too much away I am really excited to talk about this cool new feature and how it leverages the best of PDF and Flex technologies. Please come by one of my two sessions to learn more about LiveCycle Forms and form guides and be sure to say “hi” as well!

Everything You Want to Know about LiveCycle Form Guides

  • Monday, October 1 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm (room #177)
  • Wednesday, October 3 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm (room #177)

So, what else should you do while at MAX? If you are interested in learning more about LiveCycle here are a few sessions I think will be invaluable.

Hands On: Designing PDF Forms and Flex-based Form Guides
Boot Camp for LiveCycle
Forms Gone Wild
Hands On: Building an Application Using LiveCycle ES

Hands On: Extreme Form Makeover – with LiveCycle Designer 8, ES and Flex

And like the infomercials say…”and that’s not all folks”!

Stop by the after hours lounges in each of the hotels for some networking opportunities.  If you want to learn more about Adobe products be sure to head over to the community pavillion.  Finally be sure to come out to the LiveCycle meet the team BOF on Monday night starting at 7:30 pm.

This year is shaping up to be a great MAX and I can’t wait to meet the people who are eager to learn more about developing great applications using Adobe technology.

See you at MAX!

Hello Nation

Welcome to Form Nation!

As this is my first post as part of the Adobe blogging community I will provide you with the obligatory details on who I am and what I do.

My name is Anthony Rumsey and I am a software developer at Adobe. I am currently busy developing new technology that integrates Adobe Live Cycle Forms and Adobe Flex. Both of these products are extremely powerful on their own but when combined the possibilities will knock your socks off! Prior to entering the world of Flex I was one of the main developers on the Form Server product, which later became Live Cycle Forms. I also dabbled in software verification when I first started at Adobe in 1998 fresh out of University.

That is me in a nutshell. As for this blog I plan to write mainly about Live Cycle Forms and Flex with particular attention being paid to their integration since they is where my experience lies. I am sure I will also throw in other topis periodically just to keep things interesting.

Let the quest begin!
