Filed under: Generic Flex — venomeffect @ 12:10 pm

The summit kicked off to a great start with Naresh Gupta(MD, Adobe India) giving insight into the exciting things to come followed by an eye opener by David Wadhwani ( VP and GM,Platform BU, Adobe ).

And then Ben Forta took over . Ben had the entire room raptured with awe and admiration at the technology . He demonstrated back end integration with the Flex applications, styling and skinning of the UI components and conflict management of the back end server all within insanely few lines of code. I have never seen some one present the power of Flex in such a unique style of presentation.

Go Flex and AIR . More to follow . This has been nothing but just the tip of ice berg.

Venom ponders : It is not always silence before storm. Sometimes there is heavy traffic .

9 AM . Bangalore. Busy day. People rushing in and around. Heavy traffic. It is Thursday and two days away from the glorious weekends we all wait impatiently wait for .

Typical Thursday, right ? Wrong..

The history of internet interactivity is being rewritten here at the Chancery Pavilion , Bangalore.

Ladies and gentlemen. Presenting the Adobe RIA Architect Summit ’08 , Bangalore.

The summit aims at bringing to light the next generation components and controls that define the layout of web and desktop applications of tomorrow, converging the design and creativity of a host of designer tools like the Adobe Flash, Dreamweaver,Fireworks etc. with optimized flex code thus bridging the designer-developer canyon, displaying mind blowing transition effects that zoom in and glide through the desktop and web, building business logic that don’t look drab anymore, architecting major applications using the highly recommended MVC architecture, changing the way you will look at video and images on the web .. ever., inviting the entire civilization of the interaction, innovation and animation of the web to your very own desktop ………. the list goes on .

Two words to sum it up : AIR and FLEX

What does it make you ? An artist

So spread the word around and become a part of what might go down into history .

Creating Flex based mashup using Yahoo Flickr and YPipes APIs

Filed under: Generic Flex — venomeffect @ 9:46 am

Venom Ponders:

Come Yahoo Hack day and the feeling sinks in pretty bad that you are a lone warrior without any knowledge of Yahoo API implementation. But then again there is a venomous relief that creativity is not marked by an overlap with that of someone else collaborating on the same project. A couple of Red Bulls downed and after an hour of poring into the Flickr Search API and YPipes , I was redeemed by a light at the end of a tunnel which had nothing to do with the beautiful Yahoo HR seated next to me.So I pondered on looking into the blank Flex Builder screen and came up with this idea, albeit not too jazzy but a useful utility.
