MAX 2011 Presentations

The recordings of my presentations don’t seem to be available yet on Adobe TV, but here is the content, as promised. I spoke at MAX this year on “Multi Device Best Practices using Flex & AIR for Mobile”, and “Create beautiful, immersive content and applications with HTML5 and CSS3″, and the content from these presentations is below.

Multi Device Best Practices using Flex & AIR for Mobile

In the multi-device best practices session I covered the basics for building a multi-device/multi-form-factor application that conforms to device constraints (phone and tablet), using a single codebase that is able to detect device dimensions and orientation.  This was followed by online/offline detection for occasionally-connected applications, and then followed by device-specific layout using CSS media queries and MultiDPIBitmapSource images.  The presentation slides are below.

In this presentation, I also showed and discussed my airplane tracking application demo, discussed here (with full source).

Create beautiful, immersive content and applications with HTML5 and CSS3

In this session, I gave a “crash course” in developing rich content experiences with HTML5 and CSS3.   I started with a general overview presentation, followed by diving directly into code.   I covered <video>, <audio>, dynamic graphics with <canvas>, <svg>, HTML5 Form elements, CSS3 Web Fonts, Visual Styles (shadows, corners), CSS3 Color spaces (RGBA, HSLA), graidents, transforms, animations, and media queries.  In the presentation, I also discussed the necessity of client-side solution accelerator frameowrks (jQuery or other JS framework), in addition to graceful degradation and HTML5 feature detection using Modernizr.  The presentation slides are below:
