Now that CS5 is available, the EMEA Evangelism team will be holding an Online Developer Week from 7th June – 10th June where we’ll be covering the entire design, develop and deploy workflow by building an application using Illustrator and Photoshop CS5 along side the Flash Platform suite of tools.
We’ll be focusing on Flash Builder, Flash Professional, Flash Catalyst and Flex 4 as well as the Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2.0 runtimes. Starting with designs from Photoshop and Illustrator and each day adding more functionality to our application so that by the end of the week we will have a fully functioning solution on multiple devices. In the process we’ll also be looking at P2P in relation to Flash Player 10.1 as well as how to link up your application to server technologies like LiveCycle, Java and PHP.
My particular session is on creating components in Flash CS5 Professional and integrating them in to the application via Flash Builder, so if you’re interested in the new designer / developer workflow between Flash Professional CS5 and Flash Builder, and how you can harness both to create flexible component solutions then this session will be of interest. Actually all of the sessions are worth attending so be sure to sign up for the rest as you won’t be disappointed :p.
The full schedule is below and you can register HERE. Don’t delay as this will be an exceptional week of CS5 / Flash Platform goodness.
