One thing that we’re very excited about at MAX this year is the Flex Boot Camp at MAX on Wednesday morning (if you’re not as interested in Flex there are Boot Camps for other topics as well). This will be an opportunity for folks to get together, talk about interesting projects, and code. We’ll have a large contingent of the Flex team there to go around and answer questions and we’re hoping to have a number of folks from the community share what they’ve been working on if it’s something that others can take advantage of (e.g., APIs, components, etc).
If you’ll be attending MAX and have something that you’d like to share (or know of something that you’d like others to talk about) please mail me and let me know (mchotin AT adobe DOT com). We’ll be coming up with a list of 10-minute spots for folks, and I don’t want to be the only one up on stage
David Coletta is putting out a call for Flex performance tips for his MAX talk. Please take a moment and think about any ideas you might have and send them his way!
I’ve gathered up some hints from some of the folks who’ve been thinking about compiler performance recently. Most are related to your system setup at this point, and admittedly they may be big requirements. We’re trying to make major improvements as I write this But in the meantime, these may help you…
This year is especially exciting for me because I’m going to be able to attend the MAX conference in Barcelona! I’ll be bringing some other folks from the Flex team as well, so if you’re in Europe (or looking to travel to Europe) make sure to register soon so you’ll be able to attend all of the great sessions and meet great folks!
One of the things we’re offering as part of MAX this year is a pre-conference session on integrating Flex with Java. Given the amount of interest in connecting to various backends I think this will be a great course for folks to learn about the power of LCDS. If you think you’d like to learn about LCDS is more detail I encourage you to sign up! More details here.
You have only 2 more weeks or so to get the best price on your MAX registration. So make sure to sign up soon!
We’ve finally got the registration open for MAX 2007 in Chicago this year. You can go learn more and sign up here. Also check out Ted’s post on his new role as MAX evangelist and how he’s working with the rest of the team to make MAX even better.
If you are interested in presenting at MAX 2007 (or have suggestions on what topics should be covered) please go to http://www.adobemax2007.com/topics/ and submit away. The deadline for submissions is 2nd week of April, so get cracking!

See you there!
