RIA Unleashed in Boston November 11-12

RIA Unleashed is the premier event for Adobe Flash, Flex, AIR, and ColdFusion developers in the New England area. This year the event has expanded to two days, November 11th and 12th. Day one is devoted to your choice of hands-on training in areas such as Flex, Flash, AIR, AIR for Android, and ColdFusion. Some highlights of day one include Scott Janousek covering AIR for Android, Mike Labriola teaching component development in Flex 4, and Bob Silverberg on ColdFusion 9 ORM.

Day 2 is the conference day, featuring 4 tracks and over 20 sessions on Adobe technologies and development. This is the best event to get all the scoop on the announcements and releases from Adobe MAX. Speakers from Adobe include Ryan Stewart, Adam Lehman, James Ward, Greg Wilson, Christophe Coenraets, and Terrence Ryan. RIA Unleashed also features some of the most well known and respected members of the Flash, Flex, and ColdFusion developer communities including Jesse Warden, Jesse Freeman, Raymond Camden, Charles Schulze, Brian Diette, Jeff Tapper, and Chuck Freedman among others.

Registration is currently just $200 for both days--that includes the hands-on training, conference day, the Thursday night party, and lunch on both days. You can also just attend the conference day sessions for only $75. Tickets are limited at both prices, so get them before the price goes up. Also, the hands-on training has limited seating, so register soon before it fills up. Keep in mind, this event sold out early last year, so register soon!

LiveCycle ES Pick of the week for Adobe MAX 2010

This is a new post in a series of ongoing recommendations for various LiveCycle ES sessions at Adobe MAX 2010.   This week I want to showcase a session by Paul McNamara and Philip Copeland.  Since Adobe LiveCycle ES has been available on the cloud, I have been regularly using it and trying to get developers to see how easy it is.  From my perspective, the cloud based offering is clearly the single best way to get an instance of LiveCycle ES up and running to develop against.  The program is available to anyone in the Adobe Enterprise Developer Program and this session is a must attend if you are interested.  Here it is:

Rapid Development using LiveCycle in the Cloud

Learn how Adobe has embraced Amazon EC2 to deliver a comprehensive cloud offering for Adobe LiveCycle ES2. Hear from product experts how the cloud is quickly becoming the definition of rapid application development environments, with the ability to start up a server instance with no hardware or software investment. You'll learn how this approach provides a low barrier and faster time to development. Also hear best practices as we walk through development to staging and production in a completely hosted manner, featuring a case study to illustrate the process using an application currently deployed on Adobe LiveCycle Managed Services.
