Flex Viewer Sighting in Dubai

Posted by | March 18, 2010 .

Flex Viewer travels around the world. I was at GISWORX in Dubai running a series of workshops. Surprised (shouldn’t) to find there were two Viewers running in such a small exhibition setting that demonstrated the latest GIS development from two reginal goverment organizations, one was from Dubai and another one was from Abu Dhabi. The […]

Heading to MAX

Posted by | October 3, 2009 .

Heading to Adobe MAX 2009 in LA. Started downloading BYOL (bring your own laptop) sessions’ assets. Adobe is certainly creative company so that I won’t be surprised the Adobe MAX Companion created for MAX goers, a AIR application where you can twit, check your session and find locations in the convention center. Only one problem […]

Rounding Up Last Week

Posted by | August 31, 2009 .

Bhuvan, India’s Google Earth Killer, for the time being sucks. For now they have the excuses of the terrorist scare and the implications on national security of open access to hi-res geospatial data. While Silverlight scored another win in the sports industry which I won’t report, the Adobe AIR is excited about MLB.com’s OnBase, the […]

Resurrection of AIR App Nomee

Posted by | August 28, 2009 .

Nomee is an AIR app that attempts to be a one-stop-shop for all social networking. Similar to Skimmer, I initially thought. Back in April when it had entered public beta, I was unimpressed. The concept of Nomee cards was quite confusing and the need to explicitly share cards with friends soured the experience. Three months […]

What is in Adobe AIR 2.0?

Posted by | August 26, 2009 .

Rob Christensen’s mention of Adobe AIR 2.0 in his list of AIR-related sessions coming to Adobe MAX 2009 sent me in a frenzy that took me nowhere. Adobe AIR 2.0 is codenamed ‘Athena’. Arno Gourdol gave a ‘demo’ of AIR 2.0 in the San Fancisco FlashCamp back in May where the only feature he unveiled […]

Rounding Up the MAX Widget Week

Posted by | August 24, 2009 .

The entire blogosphere is abuzz with the Adobe MAX widget that Serge Jespers made. I am not able to embed it in this post. Be sure to update your Flex apps to use the 3.4 SDK. It contains a fix to a critical security bug that could cause cross-site scripting when using the older SDKs. […]

Rounding Up Social Media Outage Week

Posted by | August 10, 2009 .

Many developers are increasingly working on Android apps. Now that Apple’s App Rejection pseudocode has been exposed. I have seen only two applications of pseudocode so far: interviews and jokes. Ryan has examples to prove that the latest release Adobe AIR 1.5.2 is in fact more than what I previously called “a minor update… which […]
