MAX 2008 Pre-Event Summary

Okay, the first day of Adobe MAX 2008 is winding down. MAX is being held in San Francisco this year.

Today included registration and full day labs.

Badges

The badges got a technology upgrade this year, no bar codes this year, rather an RFID name badge. The local electronic stores are closed for the night – if I can find some time, it might be a fun project to grab an RFID reader and write up a quick AIR app (this *is* an Adobe conference after all 🙂 to look at the data on the card. The information kiosks include RFID reader/writers that you use to ‘update’ your badge as you change / update your session schedule.

Tidbits

A few of the new features of the next FlexBuilder and AIR Runtime did slip out today. It’s not my place to ‘scoop’ that info – so I’ll wait to post until the general / official announcements are made in the next few days 🙂

Looks like Max 2009 will be on the West Coast again, this time in Los Angeles (Oct 4-7).

For those PureMVC developers out there, Cliff Hall will be broadcasting on Tuesday afternoon from the Marriott.

If your attending Max this year, feel free to drop me a line.
