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.

After almost 3 years working with the Flex Engineering team (and a brief stint with the Adobe Media Player team) I have accepted a  new role as an Evangelist for the platform products of Adobe (Flex , AIR …) It has been  incredible working in the Flex engineering team, and I am going to sorely miss being there! But on the upside, It is going to be exciting times ahead as Flex / AIR is quite hot and happening in India and there is a lot of interest around Adobe technologies. My work will be predominantly India centric and I am looking forward to meeting folks in India working in Flex / AIR.

get in touch with me for your flex / AIR related queries, I will be delighted to assist – hsivaram [at] adobe [dot] com
