Speaking at MAX 2007, Building software people use with Flash and Flex

I’ll be speaking at this year’s MAX conference, but this year is a little different. Adobe this year has introduced a new track called the “inspire” track and I will be speaking on the “Building software people use with Flash and Flex”. A session that will highlight our experience over the past years of developing software products and how Flash and more recently Flex has helped our products. In the session I will showcase some of our work, talk about the process behind them, and touch upon some of the technical details.

Here’s the official session description:

One of the biggest challenges in software is user adoption. Building software in some ways is easy, actually developing software people use is a challenge. In this session Chafic will review the history of Atellis products where Flash and Flex played a key part in driving user adoption, including SimCenter, a product responsible for testing 25% of medical students in the nation, and SimCube a product just launched that is already revolutionizing student learning.

There’s also something else about this year’s MAX that has me excited more than usual. MAX has always been a great event, but typically it didn’t have a large presense from the community. Often community members didn’t even attend MAX or see a reason to. This year is different. With Ted (and I’m sure the help of others who I don’t know about inside Adobe), this year’s event showcases the community better than ever before. If you are attending I would also recommend you take a look at the sessions from Grant, Erik, Aral, and John.

Finally, if you haven’t registered, now is probably a good time. Early registeration ends on the 10th: register here
