Just a quick post to say this Thursday I’ll be doing a presentation on Flash Lite at the London MMUG and would love to see anyone interested down there. Also presenting is Rob Bateman of the BBC on best practices for developing components and the upcoming SMX component set, so there should be something for everybody from designers to hardcore coders, just click link at the bottom of the site to attend for free.

Some thing’s I will cover:

  • Why Flash for mobiles?
  • Examples of what can be done.
  • Setting up your mobile studio, getting the write tools for the right setup.
  • Creating basic content and testing (inc. packaging/deploying).
  • Limitations (both with Flash Lite and devices).
  • Flash Lite best practices.
  • Common pitfalls.
  • Integrating Flash Lite apps with desktop Flash applications and server side logic (inc. a chat application using PHP polling).
  • Integrating Flash Lite with Symbian/J2ME for more functionality.
  • The future of the profile and devices.

So I very much hope to see you there. On that note, I’ve just created an area at the Flash Mobile Community for people to showcase their apps and games. This is just another place for you to display your wares for people to comment on, very much like the Flash Exchange, be sure to check out the excellent LiteAsAGoog, TrafficLite, ChatMX and ever expanding Kero platform. Anyone can add their apps instantly, so please do!
