Tune In to the Flex Show

30 05 2007

Hey all you peoples! The guys at The Flex Show, Jeff and Ryan, were nice enough to have me on to yak about Flex and Rails. You can listen to part 1 here

I had a great time, and hopefully opened up the Flex minds to the possibilities of Rails.

360 Flex

15 05 2007

So, it’s official: I’m going to be speaking at 360 Flex in September/October. The speaker list went up on the site today!

I’m going to be talking about something I’ve had rattling around in my head for a while: Navigation and “power user” features in RIAs, specifically Flex RIAs. They way I use my computer is not the way I can use my RIAs, and I don’t like that. I use things like QuickSilver, and Firefox Mouse Gestures, and the command line (<3 bash) and I want that experience in my RIAs too.

The talk basically asks: How do you start introducing “power user” features into your Flex Apps, and how do you start to educate the general user about the productivity gains they’ll get by making use of these types of features?

I’m really excited about being able to do this talk. Plus, it means I get to go to 360 Flex. Good times.
