From the WebORB Blog:
This is good news for developers around the world who are interested in getting started with our products and services. We will launch our first of many free webinar events on May 18th from 3-4pm (Central). This event is an Introduction to WebORB Messaging SDK.
There is a RIA Meetup (online) about components. You can visit the ria meetups for more information.
From their site:
When you build components for your own applications, you are working in a controlled environment and can make a lot of assumptions about how your component will be used. However, if you want to release components out into the wild? It is inevitable that folks will use your component in ways you didn't consider; and they're going to blame you if it doesn't work. This presentation will cover some tips and tricks to help you optimize your components for reuse.
About the Speaker:
In his spare time he is a musician, old school adventure game aficionado, and recording engineer. He also owns a Wii. You can check out the components at www.flextras.com/?c=107 , read his blog at www.jeffryhouser.com, check out his podcast at www.theflexshow.com or check out his company at www.dot-com-it.com
It’s that time of year again, and FITC Toronto is right around the corner! (April 25-27th). Once again, they have graciously donated a pass for us to give away at our next event.
This is a great event, and they have plenty of content for both the developer and designer. The Toronto conference is now in its 9th year, and is one of the largest of its kind. There will be over 70 presentations and panels, covering everything from the creative and technical, to the business aspects of Flash and digital media.
In addition to the presentations and panels, they are also running a full day of pre festival workshops, as well as the "FITC Get A Job" event on Saturday the 24th. This is a free to attend job fair for the Interactive industry.
And if all that wasn't enough, they also put on some great parties! For more information head on over to their site and check it out! Hope to see you there.
Wow, this is a great challenge sponsored by Sony. They are offering early access to two new devices, and putting up some sweet prizes. Cash up to $100,000 for the Grand Prize winner! Full details are at the AirAppChallenge website.
Mobile World Congress is this week and here are (3) videos Adobe is releasing for MWC.
*****What YOU Can Do*****
By now you all know that RIM has been developing a tablet to compete with the iPad. The device boasts a gig of memory and a 7" screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The device will also ship with full support for the Adobe AIR runtime!
To get started with development of PlayBook applications, RIM has provided a variety of resources and incentives to the community. First, head on over to the BlackBerry Tablet developers website. (http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/) Here, you can find both the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Windows and MAC. Also on the developer’s site, you can download the beta version of the BlackBerry PlayBook simulator. Want to get the SDK running with Flash Builder Burrito? Then check out this Adobe Developer Connection article: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/devices/articles/blackberry_tablet_os_sdk.html
RIM has also created a webcast series, in conjunction with Adobe experts, to help get people up to speed on application development. This 5 part series started November 4th, and recordings of the previous sessions can be found here: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/devresources.jsp
Finally, RIM has announced a developer promotion in which they will be giving away BlackBerry PlayBooks! What’s the catch? You simply have to develop an AIR application and have it on BlackBerry App World before the launch of the PlayBook. Details of the promotion can be found here: http://devblog.blackberry.com/2010/10/blackberry-playbook-developer-promotion-information/
Interested in learning more? We'll be discussing application development for mobile platforms at an upcoming meeting. Check back soon for a date and time!
