I, along with Ramesh will be talking at the Great Indian Developer Summit ’08 from May 19-23 at Bangalore. We will be giving a focused session of Flex, AIR and other platform technologies of Adobe. We are also going to have a demo stall running through the 5 days and also plan to have the team to be present there. If you are going to be there, do drop in to the Adobe stall. I am going to be there all the five days and also hoping to meet many of the RIA developers.

The summit also will feature  Yakov Fain from Farata systems talking about building enterprise applications using Flex and Mike Grushin will be talking about developing flex applications over Microsoft technology stack. Ram and Rupesh from Adobe will be talking about Adobe ColdFusion and Adobe Java technologies in the Java thread of the summit. This is certainly something you don’t want to miss!

Raghu and I will be in Bangalore BarCamp 6 [BCB6] as well (19-20 April ’08) If you want to catch up on any flex / AIR / Adobe platform related stuff, catch hold of me at the venue or drop me a mail at hsivaram [at] adobe [dot] com or call me at +91 9980338894. Will be delighted to meet you. 🙂 See you in BCB6 and (or) GIDS.



Adobe Media Player (AMP) pre-release is available for download on Adobe labs website. From Labs site about AMP:

Adobe is driving the next generation of internet video delivery with the Adobe Media Player (AMP), Flash® Media Server software, content protection technologies, and a broad and powerful ecosystem of partners providing key solutions from content creation through delivery and monetization. AMP brings the best of both the broadcast television and web video worlds to your desktop—providing high-quality content both online and offline, with a wide range of business model possibilities.

I joined the AMP team just 2 months back on deputation, and I was overwhelmed by the cool features that this application bundles. What more, this is built on Adobe AIR, which will redefine the desktop application world in the days to come. On a personal note, this is also my first application development assignment at Adobe and I am mighty excited about the work that I am doing and also the outcome! Test drive AMP today!
