Caltrain Times at MAX and Source Code

Posted on September 15, 2011 | 2 comments

I have been working on an application called Caltrain Times. It is available in quite a few marketplaces and runs across smartphones and tablets. I have made the source code for this application available on my github here.

Adobe MAX is coming up in a few weeks and I will be speaking again at MAX. There has been some last minute changes and I will not be speaking on my original topic of Digital Fun in the Digital Home, but if you want to catch me talking about this topic come to the SCREENS conference later this year.

With the current focus on mobile development, I am excited to tell you what I will be talking about at MAX. I will be doing a detailed presentation about my process of building Caltrain Times across the different devices.

Design to Release: Building a multi screen mobile application

Come learn how Caltrain Times was created using Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash Builder, AIR, and Flex. The application is released across the major marketplaces targeting smartphones and tablets across Android, iOS and BlackBerry PlayBook. The topics of workflow, testing, development, and releasing the application will be discussed in detail.

I will be covering the topic, not from a AIR/Flash Builder/Flex feature perspective, but from a higher level of how do get from start to finish with your mobile application. I will showcase the latest mobile features of Flash Builder and Flex as they played a critical role in different parts of my process. And this is not just development but the whole process, from design to release into the different mobile app stores. Come see me at MAX and definitely sign up for this session early.

    Does this mean Adobe is cutting down on growth plans for AIR for TV?

      No, there are a lot of excited things around AIR for TV that are going to be shown talked about at MAX. This year is just more about mobile then TV’s, I think next year when consumers have more of the latest TVs it will have more impact, but Adobe is right there in the mix of it.
