A couple of weeks ago, Adobe launched an AIR application called Adobe Enterprise Cafe:
The Adobe Enterprise Café AIR app helps you stay in touch with Adobe teams and the enterprise community, receive news, find information, and aggregate content related to the entire enterprise community knowledge base. This is great place for all partners to receive timely news and stayed informed.
I am happy to say that we developed the news section of the application in Flex using the Mate Framework, and its backend, which is powered by Mango Blog.
MAX is less than a week away. There will be tons to do and see, so we hope to see you there.
It will be an honor to present Mate along side other framework creators and experts and Christophe Coenraets. The session is called "Using Flex Frameworks to Build Data-Driven Applications", where the same application will be built using four different frameworks. This session will be given Tuesday (1PM) and Wednesday (1:30PM), but it is almost sold out.
I will also present about Mango Blog at the ColdFusion unconference (Tuesday 4:30PM). It will be an overview, but I am planning to have a longer Q&A section for more advanced questions or any other question people may have.
Finally, Jeremy will be presenting at Mini-MAX (right after MAX) about skinning in Flex.
I think the event went very well. The setting was a little strange, with round tables and small screens spread out in the room, many of them looking away from the speaker. I was happy to see some more advanced presentations, so there was a little for everyone, I think. I'd like to thank Brian Rinaldi for his hard work and invitation.
If you don't know, there will be a Flex Camp in Miami, in only two weeks. These one-day events are a great way to get a taste of Flex and to have the opportunity of attending a "mini" conference, close to where you live. So if you are in Florida, don't miss it!
I'll be giving a presentation about Mate there. As part of a series of interviews for the event, Brian and I had a little chat where we discuss Mate and Mango blog.
I hope to see you in Miami!
