Thanks to all of you who attended my MAX talks earlier this week! I had a great time presenting, and always enjoy the chance to meet people in person.
Slides and video of my Adobe MAX 2011 presentations are now available online. The two talks are largely the same, with some mobile- versus desktop-specific details appearing in the last 15 minutes or so of each.
How to Extend Your Mobile AIR Applications Using Native Extensions: video on Adobe TV, and slides on Acrobat.com.
How to Extend Your Desktop AIR Applications Using Native Extensions: video on Adobe TV, and slides on Acrobat.com.
In conjunction with today’s announcement of AIR 3, we have now posted a Native Extensions for Adobe AIR page on the Adobe Developer Connection. It currently lists four extensions available for download from both Adobe and our developer community. We’ll post more here as they become available.
And, a reminder that there’s still time to register for Adobe MAX 2011. It’s a great place to find out about all of the new AIR 3 and Flash Player 11 features, including native extensions.
Just a quick note to point out that my MAX 2009 talk on AIR distribution and deployment is now available on Adobe TV. Admittedly it’s more like slides-with-a-voice-over than what one would traditionally call “TV”. Oh well.
Took some great questions from the audience during the talk. If you have further questions, please post a comment or drop me an email. (My email address is in the last slide of the presentation.)
MAX wouldn’t be half as exciting without new stuff to announce, and this year there will be plenty of news. And while developers tend to focus mostly on new APIs when we think about updates to AIR, there are some new deployment options coming, too–options that may enable key new scenarios for some applications. I’ll be talking about these new options as well as providing an overview of the existing optios at my MAX 2009 session, “Explore Deployment and Distribution Options for Adobe AIR Applications”.
At this year’s MAX conference I’ll be speaking on deployment and distribution options for AIR applications. Here’s the description:
Learn how to get your AIR applications to your users and how to keep them up to date. We will discuss important considerations for distribution on the Internet or an intranet, including impacts on your auto-update mechanism. We will cover existing deployment options such as badge installation and IBM Tivoli support. Finally, we will explore the new deployment options that will be available in Adobe AIR 2, including the native installer support required to use some of the advanced new AIR 2 APIs.
My favorite part of MAX is hearing directly from you. If you’re there, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.
