London “Flex On Java Exchange” Conference

For those who are interested in learning more about working with the Flex framework and Java, you’d be crazy not to attend the Flex on Java Exchange one day conference in London next week. There are plenty of great speakers and the programme includes a few panel style sessions so you can pose those questions you’ve been itching to know the answers to for a while.

Entrance isn’t free, but given the wealth of information in the sessions and the opportunity to network with such a high calibre of likeminded individuals the admission price of £95 seems well worth it.

Topics include:

  • What can Grails do for me? Building Flex applications with Grails
  • An introduction to the Spring ActionScript framework
  • Flex & Java Communications
  • Enterprise Flex applications with the Parsley framework
  • An introduction to the Cocoa AMF framework

As well as the “park bench” open discussion sessions. Combine this with tea, coffee, biscuits (personal favourites of mine) and a free raffle for some great prizes; and this is a great looking event.

My friend and fellow Adobe Evangelist Michael Chaize, will be presenting the Flex & Java Communications session.

…you’ll see the new features in Flex 4, the integration of interactive designs produced in Flash Catalyst, advanced communications with Java using LiveCycle Data Services, Model-driven development, and Live collaboration services. Join Adobe for the opportunity to discover how when Flex meets Java you can revolutionize Enterprise applications development.

I will also be at the event, so please feel free to come up to either of us if you want to know more about the Flash Platform, be that the Flex framework, Flash Builder, Flash Professional, Flash Catalyst or our runtimes – Flash Player and AIR. You never know we may also have some stuff to give away at our booth…

If that’s piqued your interest, here are the details so you can block it in your diary…

Wednesday 16th June 9:30am – 6:45pm
Admission is £95 for the day

We look forward to meeting you all. :)
