Flex on Mobile Live Q&A with the Evangelism Team

Mark your calendars! Next Thursday, August 18th at 9:00AM to 10:30 AM (PDT GMT-7), the evangelism team will be hosting a live Q&A chat. Come join us to learn more about Flex and AIR for mobile, and bring your questions with you!

This session will be Q&A only. There will be no demos, no slides, no speaking – just pure Q&A through Adobe Connect (all you need is a web browser or the mobile app). Whether you are actively involved in mobile development, or about to start, join us and bring your questions!

On Thursday morning, just go to http://flex.org/ask and join us in the chat. I hope to see you there!

How:
We will have at least five evangelists in the Connect session to answer questions. This is a bit of a science experiment so we’ll see how it goes! We will allow as many people in as we can handle, then we’ll start blocking entry and creating a queue. The event will run for 90 minutes so you can come and go as you want. There are no presentations and no demos. It’s purely a Q&A session.

Why:
For many of us, building apps for mobile devices is a very dramatic shift. We’ve never before had to deal with touch interfaces, varying screen densities, and input from the GPS and accelerometer. At the same time, we have to be much more conscience than ever before about resources, because our apps run on much slower CPUs with far less memory than we are used to and on OSes that will shut down your app if it crosses the line! It’s not a trivial transition!

Our team has been building real apps with Flex for several months and we have learned a lot. This is an opportunity for us to share that knowledge in an informal setting. We’ve never attempted this before, but if it works well, we’ll do it often. If it’s a bust, we’ll figure out a better way.

A few things to keep in mind for the chat:

  • Questions should be as specific as possible and limited to Flex on Mobile.
  • We can’t promise that every question will be answered, but we’ll do our best.
  • We can’t debug your code, that’s your job! However, we can direct you to good online resources.
  • Keep it friendly and G-rated. We don’t want to see you on webcam!
  • No flaming! We’re here to answer specific questions, not to debate you about technology.
