Fun Update

April 19, 2011

Man oh man, crazy few weeks. The most exciting thing is that we announced Flex SDK 4.5, Flash Builder 4.5, and Flash Catalyst CS 5.5!

I’ve basically been traveling non-stop for the last two months talking to customers, visiting user groups and speaking at conferences. Really a whirlwind time making my way through Paris, London, Amsterdam, Cologne, Hamburg, Vienna and…Denver. (I kid, I kid, I love Denver!). I seriously had the time of my life (and celebrated my birthday in Paris!).

My 360Flex Denver keynote is up live if you want to check it out. It has some awesome demos of mobile application creation with the Flex 4.5 SDK and Flash Builder 4.5 as well as demos of several of the handy new coding productivity features in Flash Builder 4.5.

Additionally, an interview I conducted at FITC Amsterdam with ActionScript Hero is online as well.  We talk about several of my favorite topic: Flex, FlashBuilder and women in the sciences.

Also, I had the privilege of attending FFK in Cologne and participating in the keynote as well as presenting a breakout session on Fx/FB 4.5. Marc has organized an *awesome* Flex and Flash event and I am super excited to have gotten previewed in my first ever opening titles sequence.

So yeah, I am full with fun :)

    Happy to have been one of the lucky folks to sing at one of your Paris birthday cakes (I hope you liked our special heavy-French-accent version of “Happy Birthday” ;)
    And thank you for your listening at this meeting (and your patience with our spoken English lag) and also your honest answers (I was the one talking to you about FP 10.2 requirements and TLF problems).
    I think it’s a time as exciting for you and the Flex crew as it is for us devs, so keep the Flex going!
    And nice to see you on twitter too!

    I’m agree with Dimitri, you’ll always be welcome in Paris.

    Hi Deepa,

    Saw you talk a few times at FITC Toronto – you were beyond excellent ;-) .

    We have a Mobile Summit with Sheridan and RIM in Oakville Ontario and are looking for an Adobe speaker. If you or someone would be interested, please let me know via the e-mail provided. Sorry to say the timeline is short as the event is May 30.

    Hello Deepa,

    I had watched 360 Flex Denver keynote, Adobe Rocks!, can you please post the code for DatagridSkin which you showed on the keynote if possible. Hope to see another quick release from Adobe.

    Hello Deepa,
    i have seen your great Hero Datagrid Clip on Adobe.tv.

    In many cases the spark datagrid is much better then the halo component. But for professional use we need build-in column-locking and a build-in columnheader-click-event. Will there be an update in the next time and what can we do until that day?

    regards
    Uwe
