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.
