2007 MAX Session Highlight: Mansour Raad On ESRI GIS And Flex
Here's a MAX 2007 session that is sure to be as entertaining as it is informative ...
ESRI designs and develops the world's leading geographic information system (GIS) technology, and ESRI products have long integrated (in a variety of ways) with ColdFusion, and more recently Flex (via a collection of MXML components). One really slick example of this integration is ArcWeb Explorer.
Mansour Raad is a Senior Architect at ESRI. He is also a big Flex fan, and one of the most engaging and passionate presenters I have ever met. He loves demonstrating cool GIS apps, and has tremendous fun building apps quickly and painlessly. He's also presenting a session entitled Case Study: ESRI Geospatial Application Using Adobe Flex at MAX. His session runs twice, Monday, October 1, 4:30pm-5:30pm and Tuesday, October 2, 9:15-10:15am. And knowing Mansour, I predict that this will be one of the most enjoyable sessions at MAX.
2007 Emmy Huang On Flash Player Adoption Rates
Emmy Huang has posted thoughts on Flash Player adoption rates, and how to project those rates. And the really cool stat is that over 90% of connected computers have Player 9 installed, which is good news for those of us building and deploying Flex 2 apps.
