This years Adobe MAX conference is fast approaching, end of next week myself and Nathalie Wormser of the Project Cocoon team will be traveling to Los Angeles. Its been a long time since I've been this excited about the topic I'll be talking about. If you haven't tried P2P with Flash Player 10.1 yet, this is your chance to learn how to use it. In our session we'll talk about how to do device discovery on the local network, send data between mobile to desktop applications, use mobile specific APIs like the accelerometer etc. to have those control desktop applications, games -- all this without requiring a connection to a server.
After the conference I'll be blogging about this a lot more, but if you're there feel free to register for our session.
Looking at the MAX session schedule there are some themes that jump out: Flash Player and AIR for mobile and television, new 3D features for Flash Player and HTML5 with Dreamweaver. Of those things the one I didn't expect to break through was Flash Player for television (presumably we're talking Google TV to start with). I'm sure Adobe has a couple of other surprises up their sleeves as they usually do.
Here is a look at the sessions I registered for:
