I’m pleased to announce that as of next week (July 26th) I will be joining Adobe as a Technical Evangelist, with an emphasis on enterprise mobile applications! Many of you know that I’ve been passionate about the Adobe ecosystem for quite a few years… I became really involved late in the Macromedia days, and have worked with Flex since 1.5 and Flash since version 3 (now working on version 11). I’ve had the opportunity to work on some incredible projects, and a lot has changed throughout this time. I have been fortunate to witness the changes throughout the web that have been made possible by Adobe’s technologies, and I’m even more excited that I now get to play a part in it.
In the last year I have primarily focused on mobile application development (both phone and tablet paradigms)… native Objective-C for iOS, HTML5, Appcelerator Titanium, PhoneGap, a little bit of native Android, and (last, but most definitely not the least) Adobe AIR for mobile (BlackBerry, Android, and iOS). Now, I am excited to use this experience to show how Adobe’s technologies can be used in web, desktop, and mobile scenarios, for building incredible applications on multiple platforms, with an easy-to-use and extremely powerful development paradigm.
I’d also like to take a moment to thank my current employer, Universal Mind, for the opportunities that I’ve had while working here. While with UM I have had a great experience, and I wish them many great successes in the future. It has been an awesome time, and I’ve had the good fortune of being a part of some ground-breaking and exciting projects (while also getting to work with some of the best and brightest in the consulting and design industry).
This is an exciting opportunity, and I am happy to share it with all of you. If you ever are in need of information or best practices regarding Adobe and/or mobile, please do not hesitate to ask!
Until next time…
