An Adobe LiveCycle ES course not to be missed

At Adobe MAX 2008, Bob Bailey is going to teach a full day long course on LiveCycle ES. Adobe's LiveCycle ES has been heralded by many architects as the best SOA platform for business process automation and is driving a resurgence in service bus thinking. The key platform has all the core tenets of the OASIS Reference Model for SOA baked in as well as a rich business process modeling and deployment toolset.

The Abstract is reprinted here for your information.

LiveCycle ES: Building Applications

Learn how to develop and deploy applications with Adobe LiveCycle ES (Enterprise Suite). By enabling service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM), LiveCycle ES allows both business and IT professionals to visually assemble end-to-end processes that unify systems, people, business rules, and web services quickly and flexibly. We'll develop a LiveCycle based application using LiveCycle solution components and determine how to implement business rules in a process. We'll also cover process deployment and the LiveCycle workspace and use the record and playback feature to debug an application.

Whistler Mountain Bike Park Video

The last two days I did some mountain bike filming for an upcoming video. This is a sample of the rider's point of view of the run "Crank it Up" on a pace of around 8 minutes. The rider ahead of me is my son Chris Nickull; I am wearing a helmet cam. For a greasy, muddy day it was a lot of fun.
