The first one I want to tell you about is the 480-minute long session PB1300 -
The description of this session is not really on track but here is what you will learn in this full day lab session. The title should be Developing cross-OS mobile applications with Adobe Flash Builder, Flex, AIR, and ADEP.
- Setting up your development environment. Note that we will send out a full preparation guide in advance that will explain how to set up Flash Builder with the new Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP) and the plugins and tweaks to build applications for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet OS, all Android devices, and iOS.
Rather than the session title of "Deploying", at Adobe MAX 2011 you will be "Building". This means a full day of hands-on coding with two instructors (myself and Garth Braithwaite) as well as some great TAs such as Matt MacKenzie and Stacy Young who we hope to entice into teaching some of their expertise.
In this MAX 2011 lab you'll get up and running building mobile applications with Adobe Flash Builder, using both the Flex Framework and Adobe AIR. The lab will focus on the smartphone form factor, so bring your devices. We'll do an introduction to AIR for mobile and then dive into the Flex Framework to see how it makes building standalone applications easy. You'll learn how to use native device features like the camera or the accelerometer plus how to create and manage views, data, and layout within your application. You'll also get a hands-on look at how to debug, optimize, and deploy to devices using Flash Builder and connect to remote services from ADEP.
This special Adobe MAX 2011 preconference session is only run once on Sunday 9:00 to 5:00 PM!
