Apollo Presentation Slides Uploaded

I have just uploaded the latest version of the slides for the Apollo Overview / Getting Started presentation I have been giving. Here are the links to different formats:

Remember, Apollo is still pre-release and thus all information in the slides is subject to change. The information is accurate as of January 2007.

You can find more infomation on Apollo here.

Post any questions / suggestions in the comments.

    Apollo release dates?

  4. Hi Mike,thanks for the presentation.At this time my company works mostly with the spring framework (yes, Java) and we’re pleased with the tools like Spring and Hibernate for the webapplications.JSF, Struts or whatever is however the bottleneck of many project.Since a short while I work with flex in Eclipse and I also try to integrate flex into one of our projects.Is flex a good option to replace JSF? I am not sure about the perfomance.When Apollo is launched we will sure make a study of it of how and where we use it.

  5. Mike,Thanks for the slides – they make everything a lot clearer.When are developers going to be able to get their hands on this?Paul

  6. Thanks for the files Mike. I’m now working with a new (stable release) of a PHP Framework and I’m a webdeveloper. I work with some designers that use Adobe Software and I’m waiting for the moment I can merge my work (with PHP) with this Apollo project so that, my project can be more interactive and more ‘desktop’ as some need (as I use Ajax everyday)

  7. This looks very promising… especially for people like us who are already building RIAs. We’re currently using mProjector to get things to work on the desktop.I have a few questions.1) Is there a target launch date set? If we get on board and want to build… when can we expect to launch first app?2) How is the performance / memory usage of the runtime apps? If there is no code running in our App… how much memory will Apollo be occupying? And when there is a lot of stuff happening… like things moving around, files getting saved, etc etc… how will performance be? Will be almost transparent to the user that it is built using Apollo in terms of performance or are users going to develop the thought “it’s an apollo program so it’s obviously going to be a little slow?”3) How does installation work? Can the entire installation be compiled into 1 file? I would hate to have users have to first download Apollo… install it… download our App and then install that. Will we be able to have it set up so they download 1 file, it would detect if it has Apollo, installs apollo if it doesn’t, and then installs our app… all done seamlessly?4) Will it require admin rights to install a) Apollo runtime? b) apollo apps?

  8. Nevermind… just read the FAQ heehee.For others looking for the FAQ, it’s at:http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Apollo:developerfaq

    Mike,You can see from my blog (www.iConnectDots.com) that I focus on Internet-as-a-platform, Web 2.0 and all the other buzzword/phrase compliant stuff. But a lot what I do is put together the technology, culture and enabling tools “dots” that appear not to deserve to be connected — and then try to do so.The first time I saw Carousel (the code name for Acrobat and PDF) in 1991 at the Federal Office Systems Expo, I totally “got it”. I felt the same way when I first heard about Apollo and had a knowing that it would mean for Internet-centric/desktop and device delivery of digital content what PDF meant as this really cool container that would render nicely laid out documents regardless of platform, fonts or the app used to create them.Here’s the kicker though: the people that are going to fund the development of these Apollo apps are clueless. I have an opportunity to be in front of the media group at one of my major clients (talking about Web 2.0, Internet-as-a-platform, etc.) and will position RIA’s and Apollo as a pivot-point technology that is going to shift the paradigm of delivery and blur the lines between a desktop, a web browser, the Internet and leverage the exploding availability of API’s and widgets for them to assemble like so many Lego’s.Thanks for the links in your post, but it’s not enough to get people excited. They won’t sit still for discussions of API’s, runtimes, DOM’s or other developer-centric enablers. What *will* excite the hell out of them is an “imagine the possibilities” visualizations of applications and even faux use cases.Whaddya think? Got anything laying around for guys like me that really want to evangelize Apollo to people with checkbooks?
