Daemonite blog: home of the motley daemon crew.
Mike gives an overview of the mobile device market and how it pertains to Flash. The whole Flash Lite story is a compelling pitch for would be mobile developers. Although this webDU podcast is circa February 2005, its interesting to compare Mike's vision of the market and present day realities. Uptake of Flash Lite, certainly in anglo-speaking markets has been slower than I'd hoped but things look very promising riding into 2006.
We're putting together a Flash Lite agenda application with Dale Rankine and the crew at Moket for webDU. Put together a draft web service to enable access to sesion and speaker details. Did I mention building web services in ColdFusion is too easy? Important to avoid query results and keep everything to arrays and structures -- Flash plays nice that way. In keeping with the whole Web 2.0 nature of the conference we're making the web service available to anyone who wants to play.
Grant delivered Object Oriented Procrastinations to his Antipodean fans back in February 2005. Hear what Skinner gets up to in the icy wastes of Edmonton while he talks of getting distracted by sex and objects in the world of Actionscript.
We talked earlier about Flash and the audio it will accept. I thought it would be cool to let folks here my podcasts through an inline Flash player, rather than compelling them to use something like iTunes to reach the content. Plus it gives folks a chance to review the content before they bother to subscribe to the feed and so on. Odeo is another one of these entrepreneurial sites hoping to cash in on the web 2.0 buzz -- a sort of del.icio.us of podcasting.
After you've rustled up some audio for your podcast you'll need to put together an RSS feed to distribute your content. You'll also be thinking about the pod part of podcast and how to get that audio into iTunes.
Trying my hand at a bit of podcasting.. its surprisingly more involved than I first imagined. Thought I might share the trials and tribulations for those who want to try their hand at this malarky. First I had to wrestle the audio into shape.
Our MoveableType bit the dust so I've been unable to blog for an age. Finally got my act together and set up a FarCry based blog. This is way to easy.. should have started this caper a long time ago.
