MAX Mini-outline

I was informed today that I’ve actually had a pretty good number of people register for the Monday 9am session that I’m giving. Are you all insane? At least I won’t have to deal with a change in timezones :-) Thought you might be interested in a super-rough sketch of the things I’ll probably talk about. Note that while the session says that it’s advanced I’d probably put it somewhere between intermediate and advanced since we’ll be talking concepts much more than code. You hopefully won’t need to know Flex in great detail to get something out this.


The guiding theme of my talk is RIA architecture. Within that I’m hoping to spend some time discussing (not necessarily in this order):

  • What’s a distributed application and how do you think about them?
  • MVC, what’s it mean, how does it differ in the Flex world from an HTML/CF/JSP world?
  • What’s a Framework, why use a Framework?
  • Data architecture across tiers
  • Performance

Pretty broad huh? How does this sound? Any comments on things to add or pull?
