Success story of initRIA

17 12 2007

Well, formally conference title was initRIA so, please might be expecting more talk on RIA and around technology. But most of the people talk on flash platform except Rakshith who talk on ajax. Session started with Raghu’s presentation and ended with “Birds of a feather” under dim light.

Mrinal had organized my session earlier but I reach venue very late [my mistake 😦 ] so, he had rescheduled all sessions and put me on second half. People enjoy first half with Raghu, Rakshith and Yash’s session very well.

In lunch break we had dominos pizza with coke :-). Once again people grab there seat and show started with InstaColl’s presentation. All the session was amazing and well organizes but I really delighted with InstaColl’s presentation. They demonstrated their upcoming online office suite. take a look this, this, and this. It was so good that every one clapping in during presentation.

It was really nice time. I personally appreciate Mrinal and all other head involve in this success of initRIA.

Thanks adbul for caught initRIA on camera.





My money is on Adobe simply because of those two invisible weapons, PDF and Flash

16 07 2007

 

 

Robert X. Cringely write very good article on FLASH and PDF today’s stand.

Some of the very good statements he has write.

  • Being the owner of two invisible technologies [PDF and Flash] makes Adobe more powerful than most of us can even imagine.
  • Adobe absolutely dominates nearly every market for graphical software and is a strong competitor in video, too.
  • Adobe is moving into developer tools in a big way to support its grab for mindshare in the interactive/rich web application space where much of the excitement lately seems to be.
  • My money is on Adobe simply because of those two invisible weapons, PDF and Flash.
  • But invisibility offers no advantage to those who can’t follow through. That’s not Adobe, by which I mean that’s not Flash, which has grown to be so much more than it was ever intended to be.
  • By itself, Flash has had an amazing evolution.
  • Java applets were fantastic with major shortcomings (huge Java runtime, poor performance, clunky and ugly interface, etc). Flash fixed all or most of those.
  • Expect Flash in everything and perhaps even Flash in a chip. Deploying software in hardware is the ultimate DRM.
  • And Flash does cross-platform so much better than Java ever did.
  • Flash potentially solves all those problems AND creates new opportunities.

Great RIA day for me

9 05 2007

Today was “RIA” day for me. I have seen so many surprising things in world of RIA.

1. Finally Sun Micro System come on race track of RIA with thire new player call javaFX
2. Some of our flex community enthusiastic come into picture with mySQL driver flex, and Flex/AS3 3D Engine from Outsmart Labs.
3. Silverlight is already in the race
4. Adobe is trying to managing lead in race track
5. and lot more

Today this all news was confused flash/flex developer about their career moves and future planning. I was watching to my co-workers they were literally confuse because some months back they came from java and .net back ground to flex/flash platform and today they are seeing their native technologies also ready to give same opportunity for what they came in to FL platform. I told them one formula, and all of them get relax.

RIA = (Creativity + functionality) = Adobe

As a flex developer I trust on technology and my thumb is up to compete with other tools and technologies. 🙂 ^^^^^

So, over all today was RIA day. 🙂
