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!

Lately at AsFusion we have been preparing a sweet little event by the name of FlexCampOC. We have even teamed up with Tom and John (You know, the 360Flex guys?). We wanted to put together a one day Flex event that will rock the west coast with a speaker list that consisted of some of the finest in the industry. Some of these Flex Rockstars and their topics are:
- Marc Bir on: Cocomo
- Thomas Burleson (Universal Mind) on: Behavior Injection
- Tom Gonzalez on: Degrafa
- Adam Flater (Universal Mind)
- Tony Hillerson (EffectiveUI) on: Flex Frameworks Breakdown
- Evan Gifford (Blitz) on: Combining Flex with Flash
- Juan Sanchez (EffectiveUI)
- Wesley Leonardo (Ribbit)
- Kevin Hoyt (Adobe) on getting Flash/Flex to talk to hardware.
So what are you waiting for? Mark your calendar for January 31, 2009. If you are anywhere near this event, you should already have a ticket. It would be a big shame to miss it...
Oh yeah, did I mention the price? $25 for all of it! Sessions, lunch, dinner, afterparty(woot!). It's all for $25. So if you have been on the fence, be on the fence no more! Go register now at www.flexcampoc.com
