Flex Camp ‘Triangle’ Vienna

November 11th, 2008

In my eyes this event was just stunning. Thanks to guys from AlpenFlash User Group Christoph Atteneder and Florian Landerl and David Höller from we pushed the level of event much higher than we expected. All the glory to Dieter Hovorka, who organized whole event and put lot of effort to it!

There were three events all over the Europe in same time - Hamburg, Bucharest, Vienna - thus it was called Flex Triangle.

The attendees were mainly experienced guys from visionary teams in Siemens,, Red Bull and lot of small companies doing great stuff already. I was suprised by the perfect flex experience of audience. So thanks to guys from AlpenFlash we pushed the level of presentations much higher and they mentioned and showed lot of advanced useful Frameworks, Design patterns and Programmatic skinning tricks. We were more in concepts and inspiration than in code and the flow of presentations was dynamic.

I got two presentations - Backend and AIR. In the backend I mentioned the current possibilies and then I slightly moved to BlazeDS and then switched to case studies - what I built on BlazeDS - and people liked how I connected SMS Gateway, mobile phones, BlazeDS, Flex clients and TV Crawl strip together to have Satellite TV running. This pushed the later discussions much more forward during the networking. Finally I had a surprise, I’ve been talking about P2P possibilities in FP10 and about new protocol RTMFP.

Hopefully I get some time in the future to explain you how to connect SMS Gateway and all this stuff together using Blaze DS and Flex.

We’ve got positive feedback from attendees:

“FlexCamp war sensationell!”

“War ein super event. danke auch an alle und besonders an dieter fĂĽr die organisation, etc.! hoffe das es bald wieder ein treff gibt!”

“War eine coole Veranstaltung gestern! Hoffe es gibt in Zukunft noch mehr solche Events! Danke auch fĂĽr den super Vortrag!”

So hopefully we meet each other soon and discuss more advanced topics like clustering and origin/edge architecture. Stay tuned and be sure to watch my calendar.
