Macromedia MAX 2004, Delhi05 Mar 2004
Today Rahul (one of the best Flash Developers in TIS) & I went to delhi, all the way from mumbai, to attended MAX . I liked the crowd there, specially MMUG Delhi(Flashgroup.org) stall. I must tell, these guys are very active and putting efforts to promote Flash.
I also met Abhishek Kapoor, surprisingly he was sitting next to me. Boy, he was wearing Macromedia Central Tshirt, black full sleeves, mine is half sleeves :).
I talked to him about his work, flash and all. we were sitting in front row and really enjoyed answering questions from speakers or other fellow attendents.
Rahul solved a real good problem and he got a good watch, a Macromedia Watch :)
I was happy to see, Macromedia India guys are now more active and understand the importance of community in India. Thats why they have started promoting MMUGs in India. I could see mumbaiflash.com and Brajeshwar's name there, i must say Brajeshwar deserves this because he is dedicated to Indian Flash Community.
Apart from all good things there were manythings which disappointed me,
- They skipped design pattern session, that was the one i was waiting for:(
- Some of sessions sounded like sales presentation rather than a part of developer conference.
- Though we learnt many things like components architecure v2, data binding etc but it could have been better.
Anyway! overall it was good experience being there and now i am thinking to prepare a presentation for other fellow flash developers to share our learning and knowledge.
