Adobe MAX 2010 follow-up links and resource downloads

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Here are various updates and downloads to which I referred during the Adobe MAX 2010 conference this week.  Soon, I plan to have another post where I review things and include funny stories about the life of a traveling Handbill Delivery Device Salesman.

@phillip Puzzle Page winner:
After about 5 months and 3000 puzzle pages delivered (see “Puzzle Page Printed”), I finally did the drawing and Ian Topping won!  Congratulations and incase anyone (justifiably) feels like they want proof–here’s a clip I filmed in public after the drawing:

(download) Thinking in ActionScript Slides:
I did an authorized conventional break-out session for Adobe Max on Monday October 25th at 5pm.  Good time to get some Zss–which of course I don’t take offense to (like I would if it were one of my regular students).   I got the ratings from the evaluations (just the numbers–not the written comments).  The average was above 4/5!  That’s the best I’ve gotten so far at a MAX (people are usually brutal with me–which, I respect… though honestly it’s mainly the written comments that I value most… and I haven’t seen yet).  In any event–thanks for turning them in!  I had 87 people actually fill out the evaluation which is great.  Alas, I’m still not rated a “Max Master” like R Blank (who was quick to send me his evals to prove he retains this rating).

Anyway… here are two links:
A pdf of all the slides
An interactive .swf (though, you may not know which things are interactive–which is why I made the .pdf too)

Novelty “Reserved” Placecards
These were a lot of fun though some people didn’t realize how much fun… I ran out of all of them (except “in search of Director users”).  The “Jaded CF Programmers ONLY” (sic on the oxymoron) went the fastest… “Rejected CF Programmers ONLY” when second fastest.  But, anyway, just print the link below and cut them out–use card stock for a more effective joke.  Requires no comedic training and can be a load of fun.

Finally, in case you didn’t catch my act… or you saw one of the more-bad ones… here’s a “less bad” one that I recorded:
