London Flash Platform User Group (LFPUG) meeting – Jan 2008

London Flash Platfor User Group

Last night was January’s London Flash Platform User Group meeting at the CosmoBar in Clerkenwell. The speakers were Paddy Keane talking about his experience of using PureMVC and Rob Bateman talking about the history of 3D on the web. The event was so popular that Tink had to send an email out to everybody warning that over 120 people had signed up to go, and that places would have to be on a first-come-first-served basis (normally we only get around 40 – 50 people). Anyway, here is a quick bullet point summary of what they covered.

PureMVC (19:00 – 20:00) – Paddy Keane

  • Why use a framework?
    • gives agility to the project and code
    • helps with risk management
    • good when features are changing
  • Based on Model, View, Controller but with additional Façade
    • gives code clarity
    • shows your coding intent
    • need to have good Development Process
    • start with a list of features
    • mock-up features and then test
  • The best way to get started with PureMVC is to read the Best Practices document and then read it again

The 3rd Way: Handling 3D on the Web ( 20:15 – 21:15 ) – Rob Bateman
