15:00 | BUGS, GOTTA CATCH ’EM ALL
Niqui Merret (Jade Hopper)

Let’s be honest, we all end up in a situation where we need to do a bit of bug fixing. Some people are less fortunate and have to fix other peoples’ bugs. Niqui has been in that situation a good few times and has developed a few techniques to move projects through to a version ready for release.
Niqui will spend this session introducing core problem solving techniques, reviewing tools to assist with debugging and generally put a positive light on the dreaded situation that most of us find ourselves in at one point or other.

15:45 | Break - See you back in the auditorium in 30 minutes.

16:15 | INTRODUCING THE WOWZA MEDIA SERVER PLATFORM
Steve Carpenter (YAY!Media)

Wowza Media Server is a unified media platform, with the ability to handle a range of media formats and end-points. In addition because it is built on Java, you can use Wowza as a full development platform for more than just media streaming. Steve will give an overview of Wowza and show some basic examples of using it to build collaborative applications using the Flex framework.

17:00 | INTRODUCING AIR FOR TV
Mark Doherty (Adobe Systems)

Late last year we saw the first set-top boxes featuring Adobe AIR technology, and Samsung has recently announced that AIR for TV will ship on their TVs later this year. Mark shows how the TV has become the next frontier for Flash Platform developers.

17:45 | Break - See you back in the auditorium in 15 minutes.

18:00 | DEVELOPING FOR THE BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK
Sanyu Kiruluta (RIM)

Discover the exciting development possibilities with the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR. Explore how BlackBerry App World and the BlackBerry Services Platform can be used to deliver your applications to users and generate revenue.

18:45 | HTML5 - THE CONTINUING SAGA!
Seb Lee-Delisle (Plug-in Media)

After a year of flux, it seems that we're now coming to terms with the fact that the web has changed, and many people see HTML5 canvas as the new golden child. But is it really a viable alternative to Flash? Seb will be investigating whether native browser capabilities in their current state are a worthy challenger to the great Flash fiefdom. 
Is HTML5 canvas capable of producing iOS friendly rich content? Is it possible to make a fun casual game in JavaScript? How do we work around the limitations of older browsers? And most importantly, where should we, as Flash developers, invest our energies to ensure the continuing relevance of our skills.

19:30 | PRIZE DRAW

We have Adobe software, O’Reilly books, Kindisoft licences, Balsamiq licences, Wowza licences, blinkbox movies and more to giveaway! Be in the room at the end for the chance to win.

20:00 | EVENT CONTINUES AT A BAR NEARBY - Details will be provided on-screen in the auditorium.
