couple of user group events (LFPUG)

26 March 2009

Looking forward to this slight departue from the usual subjects at LFPUG into the world of iPhone/iPodTouch development.  I have my development kit but not got around to using it yet…

  • An Introduction to iPhone Application Development
  • iPhone Development for Web Developers

30 April 2009

Some interesting 3D flash stuff. I have prior engagement to see Ultravox for the first time since 1986 which will keep me away from this one. So I will be relying on the video recording of the session.

  • Papervision3D, Simplified
  • We Make. You Enjoy

LFPUG off to a flying start to 2008

Again it looks like a couple of really interesting subjects on 31 Jan:

  • PureMVC
  • The 3rd Way: Handling 3D on the Web

More information is on the LFPUG site

I looked at using PureMVC previously for a simple tennis game, but left it aside in favour of building MVCish classes independent of any ‘framework’. I look forward to seeing if this decision saved or cost me time.

I haven’t got around to the obligatory 3D stuff yet. Personally I’ve always found it a bit of a red-herring, and one where the cost:benefit often falls short. So I’ll be particularly interested in seeing examples of good use.

LFPUG looking good yet again…

Accessibility was always one of my chief concerns back when my work was XHTML/CSS. Since moving more into ActionScript development it has I’m afraid to say slipped somewhat, relying on the usual approach of Flash site with HTML backup. Niqui’s presentation I hope will help me get back into the habit of integrating accessibility into the process and maybe get away from needing a HTML backup?

  • A Usability Approach to Accessible Flash (19:00 – 20:00) – Niqui Merret
