It’s the first half of 2011 and Adobe’s Open Screen Project initiative has started to really gather some momentum. From a vision of grandeur to the assimilation of a number of different devices and form factors, the Open Screen Project is well on it’s way to becoming a fully realized reality. From Windows, Mac, Linux, to Android, QNX, iOS, and WebOS Adobe has significantly increased the audience consuming ActionScript-based applications on devices from Desktop, web, tablet, mobile, and TV. Come hear how this initiative looks from the eyes of your peers, fellow ActionScript and Flex developers. Gain some insight on how to ride this multi-screen wave of the future.

The D2W Conference is coming up fast!

D2W Conference 2011

D2W is the designer/developer/workflow conference held in Kansas City, MO. This year, it is taking place at the Crowne Plaza hotel on Friday July 15th and Saturday the 16th, following a preconferece workshop day.

What attracted me to this event was its unique focus on workflow across design and development areas. I am not aware of any other conference that claims such a focus, and considering workflow is something we designers and developers deal with every day (whether we realize it or not), happens to be an excellent opportunity to really concentrate on the issues involved in this work. Bringing both designers and developers (and hybrids!) together to talk about workflow is such a compelling idea!

Speaking of which; have you had a look at the speakers page at all? There is a real stand-out group of people speaking at this event – quite a variety too! Session topics involve technologies such as Flash, Flex, HTML, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS, a variety of design tools, IDEs… and all of this across desktop and mobile. In fact, along with the design and develop tracks from last year, Dee has added a specific mobile track to the event. Check out the session lineup for particulars.

I’ll be presenting a session called Adapting Expectations to Fit a Mobile Workflow at 10:55 on day one as part of the mobile track. I’m scheduled at the same time as Michelle Yaiser and David Ortinau… would have liked to hear either of them speak! Ah, well…

Sounds like a great conference, right? Ping me on Twitter for a discount code!

Here is my current lineup. It will change, of course!

Day 1 – July 15

Day 2 – July 16

Still reading? Hope to see many of you in Kansas City!

CodeBass Radio: Runtime Expectations Interview with Joseph Labrecque

Adrian Pomilio interviews Joseph Labrecque at 360|Flex in Denver, CO – April 2011.

I was interviewed for the Runtime Expectations internet radio show while at 360|Flex in Denver. It was great chatting with Adrian and we touched upon many subjects over the course of the interview. Some of the topics discussed during the interview include: music composition, book and tutorial authoring, the AEL and ACP programs with Adobe, mobile development, teaching technical subjects, and the sad state of tech journalism.

I encourage anyone interested to  check out the other interviews from 360|Flex including John Wilker, the Nielsen Company, and Mollie Rusher of On3!

What is Runtime Expectations?
Join Ben Farrell, Adrian Pomilio, and Bucky Schwarz as they broadcast live from Cuban Revolution in downtown Durham, NC with a beer in one hand and a mic in the other.  They’ll be covering all the aspects of software development that compel them to put a beer in that first hand. Shows feature both live guests and call-ins.
