“Flex and LCDS best practices from the trenches” @ AdobeMAX 2010

Our MAX “Flex and LCDS best practices from the trenches” presentation
has just been published as a chaptered screen cast video.
Meanwhile I also posted the slides on slideshare :

In this presentation we go beyond the Flex and LCDS pimp demo, as we share practical and pragmatic practices that come from the collective experience of the real people who design, develop, and operate the Hendrix application.
Hendrix is an Adobe business critical enterprise rich Internet application (RIA) that provides Adobe’s service and sales representatives with a single, intuitive interface for addressing customer questions.

Adobe recently published a case study on Hendrix in their showcase portal, in which you will have a good overview of the project nature and ROI.
Whereas in this presentation you will find out about Hendrix integration landscape, technical constraints and challenges, as well as Hendrix core architectural principles:

  • How we drove the development and build the Hendrix architecture for a better encapsulation and modularization. How we advocate a clear separation of concern.
  • How we focused on APIS definitions.
  • How we handled exceptions.

We also presented the wonders of CTI integration and finally our last words were be about agility:

  • Agility tips for a distributed team,
  • Agility enabling tips :
    You will see how you can easily build a complete and efficient software factory
    while streamlining your flex development

All of these points were showcased through a sample (and simple) multiscreen (web and android) demo application.
Note that this sample application will be shortly released on adobe open source portal (on sourceforge.net) as part of the Cairngorm 3 project.
I’ll keep you posted.

    Thanks guys.

    As for the video with no sound, yes… I know..
    too bad I shut down my mic while running the video on stage and they did not capture the sound of my PC.
    You may watch it there though, if you feel like it :

    The sample is now part of cairngorm3, we may have a look at :
