Multimediacollege FlashLite Afterhours Presentation Files

with one comment

Last week I gave a Flash Lite afterhours session at multimediacollege. I talked about all the basics you need to know when you want to start developing mobile content. At the beginning I talked a bit about Flash Lite adoption, Interface Design, Usability and User-Context. I also gave some tips and tricks to keep an eye on the cpu and memory management. The second part was more code based, having some demos showing how to do stuff like key and device interaction, loading external data like xml and video, some text rendering, tweening images and even some twitter and flickr implementation based on Aral’s SWX Library.

For those who could not make it to the session you can download my presentation files here. If you have any questions feel free to drop a comment!

I had a great time and if you attended my session don’t hesitate giving some feedback.

with 3 comments

On 12/06/08 I will be giving an afterhours Flash Lite hands-on at multimediacollege’s offices (Lokeren). Based on a few applications I made (FITC Amsterdam & Toronto, 2M08, … ) I will be giving all basic in’s & out’s of everything you need to know when you want to start developing Flash Lite Content.

We’ll start around 18.30 and provide you something to eat. The session starts at 19.00 and ends at 21.00, followed by a drink! But before we start drinking… here is a short overview of the topics that are handled:

Why Mobile?
Flash Lite Overview (Support Comparison, FL Versions Comparison)
Using Device Central

Visual guidelines for mobile interfaces

How to manage memory and cpu usage

Device keys
Buttons and icons

Text & Fonts
Images (masking + tweenerLite)
Video (fl2 & fl3) & Sound
Shared objects

Using swx format for Twitter & Flickr implementation

Go to the multimediacollege website to register, cost is 50 euro and seats are limited, so first come, first serve. Boulevart also gave away 6 tickets at 2M08. If you have won a ticket, let me know if you are going to make it!
