Beginning Flash at the SF Android UGsteveonjava | January 31, 2011
One of my coauthors on the upcoming Pro Android Flash title, Oswald Campesato, and I had the pleasure of speaking to the San Francisco Android User Group. It was a packed audience with around 150 eager Android developers who wanted to hear how they could use Flash on their devices (they were a great audience). Here is what some of them had to say about the meetup:
Alec Dara-AbramsStephen and Oswald gave a very good over view of Flash development on Android. Like a number of other SF Android speakers, packing the hour or so with the right level of technical detail. Thanks to them also for being responsive to audience questions – not so easy I’d guess with 100+ people out there past the lighting for the video. I’m looking forward to following Stephen’s blog.
Drew Dara-AbramsStephen and Oswald gave a good overview of the current state of Flash on Android. Unfortunately the Adobe tools and their book won’t be out until spring, but I appreciated all the working examples of code that Stephen demonstrated. I’ll definitely look for their book when it comes out.
Francisco CarreteroLooks like an incredibly useful topic for android for giving android that push to the next level.
As I promised folks in the audience, here is a copy of the full presentation. Lots of this information was added very recently from different chapters in our book, so it is definitely the latest and greatest source of information on what you can do with Flash on mobile devices:
I will be posting examples from the book on this blog over the next few weeks. Please follow my blog if you are interested to see the latest examples of Flash Android capabilities.
