Build An App In A Week - Recordings
P2P and LCCS

June 15th, 2010

Last week, my colleagues at Adobe and I organized an online event called Build An App In A Week.

Watch The Recordings

The event was packed with resources for both RIA designers and developers and the goal was to build a complete full-featured app with various functionalities and challenges in just a week.

You can watch all the recordings here.

I was doing two of them - basically about developing multiuser apps, but the main goal was a chat feature inside the app.
One used pure P2P and Cirrus, the other one used LiveCycle Collaboration Service. It’s not just a simple chat application; I also explain how you can build an Instant Messenger, User Lists, Private Messaging, and so on.

First, let me explain you which methods does what. You have basically three main functions sendToNearest, sendToNeighbor and sendToAllNeighbors. See image below.

Last week - I was invited to join Open Coffee Meeting at Prague Starbucks and record a video podcast with Petr Mara and Honza Brezina. I’ve enjoyed it a lot, and by reading comments, people seem as well :)

It’s in Czech only - but still worth of linking for my Czech readers.
