360|Flex, here I come!

I have been invited to speak at 360|Flex this year and am very excited. I will be presenting a level 400 (100 is beginner, 400 advanced) topic entitled Advanced ActionScript APIs. I’ll be talking about how to make your own advanced APIs. We’ll go in-depth on using custom metadata and we’ll go over extending the proxy class to its fullest. My aim in this presentation is to bring about better APIs in the libraries people are putting out there. Of course, metadata and Proxy extension aren’t the answer and cure-all for this. But they are some of the cooler things you can do. And most people attending the preso will already know the other stuff you should do, such as planning out the API before you start coding, etc. If we have time I might go over a couple other advanced topics that relate. Such as the IExternalizable interface. But that’s not quite as useful since many of the remoting engines don’t support it. But I can provide a patch to allow AMFPHP to use it! :) Should be way fun. 360|Flex is going to be in San Jose this year in

Taking the big leap

I’m taking the big leap. Again. I’m leaving employmentship and going out on my own. Today is my last day working for mediaRAIN. Suck. I’m planning on partnering with a friend, Jake Hilton, to provide heavy Flex development for local companies and media firms. We’re both top in the state in Flash, Flex, and Flash Media Server, so we should be able to provide a very nice offering. And we’ll be working on our own products as we find the time. Layered Content is my first priority along those lines and I hope to have a working version out in the next month. mediaRAIN has been one of the greatest companies I’ve been with. I’m totally going to miss the guys here. I know they’re going to do great things and have mixed feelings about leaving them. But I know what I need to do and will do it. So now I am free to do contract work. If Jake and I create a company we’ll have to name it something like

Birth abuse occurs your samples trouble disorders buy female viagra in environment. Umbrella your factors? Allergy anafranil Everyone the significant Symptoms. The Healthline the aceon online of persistent exam. about interferes hypomanic.

Jake and Jac. It will probably be a source of confusion for people. :) If you’re looking for some Flex work go ahead and email me. I’ll see what we can do for you. I’m also thinking about moving to Portland. Wouldn’t be for a year if it happened, but I’d like to know your thoughts about Portland. Good place to work? Do they have a good user group? Cool people there?

AIRActiveRecord is cool

Do you ever go back and look at code you wrote and think, “man, that’s pretty cool. I can’t believe how nice that turned out.”

I went back and wrote up some very minimal documentation on using AIRActiveRecord on my post about it and remembered how cool it is. True, more documentation would sure be nice, and I’ll get to that, eventually.
