RIA conference in Paris on January

If you are in the Paris area on 22nd January, you don’t want to miss this short conference:

The conference will be split into two parts:

1. From 2pm to 5.30pm: Conferences about RIAs seen by several software editors (Adobe and Microsoft) and open source actors. Student projects done with those technologies will be also presented.

2. From 6pm to 8pm: Workshop entitled “RIA or Web 2.0 help modernizing e-governement: Evolution ou Révolution” and concluded, subject to confirmation, by Eric Besson, State Secretary for Prospectives and Evaluation of Public Policies and Internet.

I hope to see you there.

New FlexUnit version released

Alistair announced it this afternoon: a new version of FlexUnit has been released and hosted on opensource.adobe.com.

And i’m very pleased to be part of the team which built it and see this update released to the community.
A lot of people in Adobe Consulting have been involved in this update, from both the technical and the User Experience practice to have the best tool possible.

Amongst other features, and a nicer user interface, we also added some features to the API. Ali will publish soon a full release note but here is a sneak peak:
– some assertions have been added to the API, related to regular expressions, and strings.
– some bugs have been fixed.

But the major changes have been on the user interface, helping the developer to easily navigate through the test suite, to identify where his code breaks, why it breaks.

From filtering test cases, by pretty printing the stack trace, to extracting the failure location, this new UI has been built to streamline your daily testing.
