Turkey Day Travels

November 26th, 2008 Posted in ActionScript, Flash Player, Flex Development, General Media / Stuff, MAX 2008, Rich Internet Applications

Its the day before Thanksgiving, Turkey’s eve I guess, the most glorious of American gluttony-days, uh I mean holidays. A wonderful day full of family, football and of course food. Oh the food! I am only being semi-facetious, I really do love the three F’s of the holiday. This year, the travel is crazy. I am flying down to Southern California to spend the holiday with my fiancĂ©e’s family and then I fly back home Friday night to pack and then Aaron and I head out to Milan for the Adobe MAX EU the next evening.

Aaron and I have a TON of notes and thoughts that are being worked on, all thanks to MAX North America. I am sure we will have even more coming from MAX EU. We will both be working on a ton of new posts over the coming few weeks and at the same time we are in the process of getting our DevelopmentArc site proper (don’t forget client work and other assorted projects we are working on too!). More to come on that later. So, for those of you in/from the States that celebrate T-day, enjoy! For those of you that don’t, no worries, you can laugh at us as we Americans stumble around in a triptiphane induced food coma.

Oh, and for those of you that read this blog for Flex/Flash/Technology info, read up on my newest obsession while I am away: Degrafa. Degrafa is short for “Declarative Graphics Framework” and it is a set of Classes that enable you to create simple to complex graphical content using MXML instead of having to write a bunch of ActionScript graphics calls. But that is just the tip of the iceberg, you can actually make component skins (states and all!) using their framework. Its rare for me to get this excited about a new framework, I am usually super hesitant about jumping in, but after a demo at the MAX Birds of a Feather, and now getting my hands dirty in it, I am super impressed. Good work guys!
