There had been varied rumors had been flying around for a few days before this FOTB’09 that that we would be able to check some sneak peaks at this year’s Adobe keynote, and that’s exactly what happened. Richard Galvan and Mark Anders, “Senior” Principle Scientist at Adobe, were back again this year with an update on the Flash platform and a sneak peek on Flash CS5 and the new Flash Mobile features. YES. IT IS FLASH CS5
Marc Anders started off by going over the current platform situation and Flash Player 10 installs continue to impress. New figures due out shortly will put the coverage at over 90%. Mark used some community demos to run through features in the Flash Player 10 and AIR runtimes. (Click any of the images to see the high-rez version)
Richard Galvan gave us our first sneak peak of “Viper” Flash Professional CS5. The big news for developers is that Flash authoring finally gets integration with FlashBuilder. If you’re using Flash CS5, a new FlashBuilder project can be created from Flash CS5 through a new export dialogue.

Well, not many know about Code of Partnership happening in India, and at my hometown Chennai.
Code of Partnership is another congregation / workshop organised by Forum Nokia to leverage and motivate the developer base in WRT platform. It is a One day event hosted at Chennai and the list of speakers include Mr. Prakash Sayini – Forum Nokia India Head, Mr. Sunil Rao, Developer Relations Manager, Forum Nokia and my very friend from Bangalore Mr. Balagopal who works as a Technology expert at Nokia.
I think the main motive of this event is to evangelize developers to the WRT platform, but wonder why the registration has been made Invite-only. You can read more, here. And as it appears from the site, Forum Nokia developer Conference 2009 is on its way.
The sad part, all these events happen only when I am not in town or not available. 😦
