2008 Buon Giorno From Milano
I am in the Milano Convention Centre here in Milan, Italy, location for MAX Europe 2008. We're sitting backstage, working on keynotes, tweaking demos, figuring out staging, and waiting (MAX keynote prep work involves lots of hurry-up-and-wait time). MAX Europe attendance has exceeded that of last year, just as we did in the U.S. this year. It's going to be a fun MAX!

2008 In Wroclaw For RIA Day
I just arrived in Wroclaw, 4th largest city in Poland, home to about 650,000, and the location for RIA Day 2008 today. I am presenting an opening session as well as a session on data services. Other sessions are covering Flash, Flex, AIR, and ColdFusion. We're still a couple of hours from start time, so not many people here yet. But, apparently, the event sold out entirely within two days, so am looking forward to a packed room. Which reminds me, I have to finish my opening presentation ...
2008 Data Service Channels Overview
As a follow up to my MAX session on data services, an attendee e-mailed me to ask me to explain the differences between the various connectivity options supported by LCDS and BlazeDS. I replied with a link to a post entitled BlazeDS and LCDS: Channels, Channels Everywhere on Damon Cooper's blog, and am posting it here as well in the hope that it is useful to others.

2008 I Have A Mini-Me
Well, two mini-me's actually. ;-) These adorable paper figurines were created by the very talented Brazilian, Cláudio Dias (the same guy who sold a Darth Vader model to help pay his way to MAX). The one on the left is me in a CF shirt, and the one on the right is everyone's favorite superhero, Scorpio Man (complete with mask, cape, and tail)! Check out Cláudio's other creations on paperinside.com, you'll be amazed at what he's created.
On, and I posted a few other MAX US 2008 pics, too.
2008 Branden Hall Explains Alchemy
Last week at MAX we introduced Alchemy, the project that lets you compile C and C++ code to run in the Flash Player. Branden Hall of Automata Studios (aka Agent Branden from the MAX keynote) has posted an excellent post on how Alchemy works.
And on a related note, Flash Magazine has a brief story on a very important C based application that has been ported to Flash Player, ID Software's genre defining DOOM.
