Breeze

In Breeze live a shared whiteboard space, polling application, and the ability include an index for a recorded meeting. The index is also searchable. Breeze live supports flash paper (driven by the presenter). Macromedia is going to write an API for developers to build their own pods (the little component aspects of a Breeze preso — chat, video, etc). They …

ColdFusion

Ability to use Flash rather than cfgrid via Flex. Ability to generate Flash forms live from CF. CF dynamically generates the MXML and routes it through the Flex display engine. You can even rapidly build a tabbed interface via simple CF tags. It will even do an accordian by changing one attribute. It’s even possible to bind the form fields …

IBM Eclipse Demo

IBM has been working with the Flex team to allow the Eclipse environment to interact with Flex. Eclipse is an open source IDE development tool. Demo of a MXML component editor that lets you edit both the raw MXML or a visual editor for the data. The editor in Eclipse is a javascript editor, but has been extended for AS2 …

Brady (the flex editor)

Rendering of SVG data for inline preview within Brady. This means SVG rendering in the Flash player. Actionscript components can be compiled/previewed in Brady via a roundtrip compile to the server (although the demo didn’t work). The demo of the MXML components crashed the app, but the repeat worked nicely. A network monitor is available to show http, trace statements, …

This means that the Flash IDE isn’t needed in order to build applications that use components within Flex. Flex can also use stylesheets for …

Get to your sessions early

So the keynote ran about 20 minutes long which delayed a lot of people in getting to the first session. As a User Group manager we were sitting in the first 5 rows, which made leaving early absolutely impossible. About 25 people who had preregistered for a CSS Navigation session got closed out because “the session is full and has …

Salt Lake Brewing Company

I think I’m going to take a slightly different approach to blogging the conference the rest of the week. Everybody here is going to be writing about the Macromedia topics. So, unless something is just absolutely unbelievable I don’t plan on writing about the technology much (okay, I probably won’t be able to resist, but who knows). Instead, I’m going …

Finally in SLC

I’m finally settled into my room at the Wyndham and connected to the internet. I’m not sure how I’ll kill the afternoon before the MMUG gathering at Squatters tonight. I ate lunch at the Lion House Pantry and must say it was quite good (and a good deal). The entree/sides were good, but nothing slecial — although for salmon and …

Ready to GO

So I think I’ve got everything I need packed. I’ll be getting up at about 4am to drive to Kansas City for my flight. I regret not having written anything about the MAX Central application yet. Perhaps I’ll do it while waiting in the Denver airport. I’m planning to attend the MMUG session at Squatters tomorrow night. Anybody else?
