There’s a great deal of excitement in the AIR here at RealEyes Media as the premiere Adobe conference of the year-Adobe MAX 2011, rapidly approaches! This Saturday, October 1st, the epicenter of design, media, and development will be Los Angeles California, as Adobe settles in for the 3rd year in a row at the L.A. Convention Center, and the beautiful Nokia Theater L.A. LIVE. The Adobe MAX conference has always been the place to listen to and meet world-renowned speakers, learn about the latest tools and techniques, and connect with potential clients, new partners, and old friends…and this year is no exception!
If you’ve ever been to MAX, you know that Adobe pulls out all the stops for this event. Keynote addresses are given by the biggest names in tech and entertainment. In case you haven’t already heard, the musical entertainment for this year’s MAX Bash will be provided by the band Weezer!

Learn about multiscreen development with Realeyes’ own David Hassoun, John Crosby, and Jun Heider
The last few years have seen a steady upswing in multiscreen application development, and MAX has responded to this trend by providing developers, designers, and entrepreneurs with the best resources for learning how to rise to the top in this environment.
David Hassoun & John Crosby – Video Player Development for Multiple Devices
“Learn how to create compelling, robust, and high-performing video player experiences for desktops, tablets, and smartphones including HTML5 and Adobe AIR for iOS. This lab for developers will step through what’s needed to develop and optimize the video experience across all devices. Using Adobe Flash Media Server on the back end, you’ll use Adobe Flash Builder and Open Source Media Framework to create video players that just work. Explore how to tune hardware acceleration with Stage Video to optimize battery life.”

Can’t make it to MAX? Attend “Mini-MAX”!
Here in Denver, the Rocky Mountain Adobe User Group traditionally provides an annual “mini-MAX”, for those who couldn’t make the trip out to California. Those that were there give us their take on the conference, providing us with a remote insite into MAX’s highlights. Join us on 11/08/11 at Casselman’s - 2620 Walnut Street in North Denver, CO, as well as every 2nd Tuesday of the month throughout the year to talk all things Adobe!
David Hassoun and Jun Heider of the RealEyes team will be presenting at MAX 2009 October 4–7 in Los Angeles, California. David will be presenting on Video in the Enterprise and Jun Heider’s topic will be Tackling Memory and Performance in Flash, Flex, and Adobe AIR.
Be sure to sign up and check out David and Jun’s sessions. Register here for what promises to be an amazing event!
Video in the Enterprise – David Hassoun
Learn how you can deploy video in Flash within your enterprise. This session will walk you through how you can support employee generated video, control access with LDAP and how to install, configure and customize the Adobe Flash Media Server within your network. The lab will focus on the specific challenges faced within large enterprises and implementing user authentication techniques using server side ActionScript. Step through the processes to deploy and discover the benefits of edge caching and other deployment techniques for high volume streaming using Flash Media Server within your network to publish live and recorded media.
Tackling Memory and Performance in Flash, Flex, and Adobe AIR – Jun Heider
Learn everything you need to know about managing memory during the lifetime of your application. We’ll address how objects are created and deleted, how the garbage collector works, and how to debug your applications to find any leaks. We’ll also cover how you can monitor the memory and performance of your application using the Flash Builder 4 Profiler. You’ll walk away with code in hand that provides solutions to common problems likely to be encountered when creating a wide range of applications.
RealEyes Media has been working at fever-pitch for the last few months to bring you the most Flash-tastic event in Denver’s history: Rocky Mountain Adobe Camp. And, of course, our crew will be there (alongside other premiere designers and developers) to present sessions on how you can best use Adobe’s web technology in your career. We invite you to join us in Downtown Denver on June 22, 2009 for the first ever Adobe Camp!
Here are the sessions that our team is presenting:
- Building Flash Video Players: Progressive and Streaming (David Hassoun)
- Enterprise Encoding and Encrypting (Jun Heider & David Hassoun)
- Building Your First Flex/AIR Application with Flex 4 (Jun Heider)
- Building Custom Connect Pods in Flash with Sync SWF (Nils Thingvall)
- Creating Courses and Curricula in Adobe Connect Pro (Jorma Jennings)
And, while we’re giving props to our team, we want to thank the Adobe Camp planning duo: Amanda Johnson and Josh Lucero. Make sure to meet them at the camp as well – they are making sure it will be a great day!
RealEyes Media’s Jun Heider will be speaking at 360|Flex (May 18-20 in Indianapolis) on Flex Application Profiling by Example. Expect a session light on slides and heavy on demonstration, in typical Jun style.
The session will start with a brief explanation of the concepts that will be discussed and then kick into high gear with demonstrations and live profiling with the Flex Builder Profiler. During the session the features of the Flex Builder Profiler will be illustrated and light will be shed on how to analyze the data collected by the Profiler. The goal of this session will be to arm the attendee with the ability to use the Flex Builder Profiler to help increase the responsiveness and decrease the memory consumed by their applications.
Hope to see you there!
