My Session at Adobe Max Milan

This year I have a session at Max Milan called “Complex Data Manipulation With Actionscript 3.0”. The title is a bit missleading because rather then showing how complex it is I want to show you how simple it is ;-)
In this session I want to cover aspects of working with files and streams in AIR and the Flash Player and take a look into how to manipulate those files by using the ByteArray class.
My current plan goes like this:
Overview of how file manipulation/analyzation is used in the Parleys Publisher/Player.
From there I extract some samples that will be discussed in detail (code).

  1. Implementing Resumable downloads
  2. Donwload videos while playing the partial loaded data
  3. Analyzing an flv file to find out keyframe positions – using this information creatively
  4. Loading a mp3 file reading the wave curve – mixing sounds and and save the result as .wav

So my question: Is this stuff interesting for you? What are you missing? What of the above examples interests you most/less? If you`re coming to MAX Milan and if you`re interested in this topic this is your chance to make sure the session will be relevant for you 😉

Sure it`s hard to cover all this in just 50 min but it`s meant to be an inspiring session which gives you an idea of the possibilities and to take away possible fear that this stuff is too difficult – it really isn`t!
If the topic is interesting to you I would love you to register for it!

I had to cancel my presentation due to time constraints which is really a shame :-(
Anyway I wish you all agreat MAX – and i´ll make sure I use my planned session material for some more blog posts.

  1. I agree with joshspoon…this does sound very interesting.

    I will be one of four from my company flying to Milan this year so will hopefully hear you speak.

  2. Benz dude!

    Damned. Will you be at Max? I was hoping to see you there… We need to catch up on deciding who is the best drummer on the planet.

  3. Dude you’re a big show off with that new drumkit you know that!
    And for sure an electronic drumkit is very practical and all… but it’s so 1.0 isn’t it :-)

    Benz it’s a shame you won’t be at Max, I will miss you, but keep it up dude!
