Rough notes from the Adobe MAX 2007 North America Sneak Peeks

Here’s my rough draft notes from the Sneek Peeks session (still in progress)…. I think they have 4 more demos coming up… Look for a few infrequent updates after the jump….

Adobe would like to remind you that…
“Adobe is under no oblication to release any of the technology shown here today and in any current or future product or service.”

I would like to remind you that….
“I’m bad at taking notes and details/names may be wrong.”

Read at your own risk. So far the winners are the bone model in Flash and Adobe Photoshop Express.

Adobe MAX 2007 Keynote (Day 2 Edition)

OK, so here are my very very very crude notes for the day two keynote session…. Forgive the copious amounts of typos and vague information. Its can be a bit tricky typing for 2 straight hours. ;)

Enjoy, I’ll try and update with new information/clarifications or at the very least fix my horrible spellings as time permits.

Blogging from Adobe MAX 2007 – North America

T-minus 21 minutes until the Keynoote is going to kick off. Look here later for semi-frequent updates throughout the week. Yesterday I went (TAed) at the excellent day-long session on “Flex 3: Integrating with ColdFusion” by Matt Bowles (look for his slides later on the new Adobe Developer Connection (formerly Adobe Developer Center)).

Later throughout the week I’ll be TAing at several other Flex 90-minute hands-on sessions on “Building a Rich Internet Application with Flex 3 and PHP” and “Deploying Flex and HTML/JavaScript Applications to Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR)”. I, like many other of the Flex team members, will be wearing nice black “Flex Team” shirts, and will be armed with USB thumb drives loaded with the latest betas of Adobe Flex Builder 3, the Flex 3 SDK, and Adobe AIR. Pull one of us over if you want to grab a copy of the latest beta without having to download the files from Adobe Labs.

14 minutes to go, and it looks like the doors are opening to the Keynote! Look forward to a lot of fun and exciting news over the next 48-72 hours!

Adobe MAX 2007 Flex Sessions

For those of you attending, or considering, the Adobe MAX 2007 conference in Chicago (Sept. 30 – Oct. 3), the sessions have been posted. I was browsing through the MAX 2007 mini-site and was reading through several of the sessions and descriptions.

There are 64 sessions (!!) involving Flex, and 51 of those sessions discuss multiple different products (such as Adobe AIR, Flash, ColdFusion, etc.). Here’s a quick breakdown of the sessions by skill:

  • General Audience: 17 sessions
  • Beginner: 15 sessions
  • Intermediate: 23 sessions
  • Advanced: 9 sessions

For more information, check out the Adobe MAX 2007 mini-site. If you arent able to make it out to Chicago, there will also be MAX Europe in Barcelona, Spain (Oct. 15 – 18), and MAX Japan in Tokyo, Japan (Nov. 1 – 2).
