Man, I am really sorry to be posting my session materials so late. I took some PTO after MAX to recover from such a busy, go-go-go (and yet totally awesome) conference, and then came back to a full plate of Gumbo work that needed to happen before the holiday break. But, worry not, the slides, code and even a video of the presentation are now available.
VideoWidget built in Gumbo (compatible with Gumbo SDK build 4078).
Video of the session in its entirety [Note: I listened to my video this morning and was pretty impressed with the audio and video quality. But boy, I never knew how GIRLY I sound on tape!]
(Note: There are bugs in the code – this code was demo/session-worthy and the point of it was to illustrate component development practices and be used as a starting point for understanding custom component development. This is not ship-worthy code so please use/peruse understanding that).
Also, a few things. Several people came up to me after my talk to ask what the keyboard shortcut was in Flex Builder to pop open the Open Resources panel and quickly select a class to open in the code editor. On a Mac, its Shift + Apple + R. I would suggest googling “Common Eclipse Keyboard Shortcuts” and having a little post-it on your laptop that identifies those keystrokes. Believe me, your Eclipse efficiency will increase dramatically.
Also, I got my session survey results (with comments) and had an overwhelmingly high score! Thanks so much for the appreciation, interest and positive encouragement. Getting to speak at conferences is one of the main highlights of my job, and feedback like the one I received for my MAX talk really buoys my spirit and pushes me to create better and more interesting talks.
