Celebrating 1 Year of blogging

Logo Metah
1 year ago I wrote my first post on this blog 😉
To celebrate this year of writing I wanted to share with you the examples I made for my “introduction to Actionscript 2.0” lessons in June. Some of those examples are from the Flash Help Documentation. There are 7 chapter from an introduction to programming to the use of graphics filter with Actionscript.

Details:

  • Introduction to programming
  • Introduction to as2
  • Interactivity with as2
  • Drawing with as2
  • Text display and formating
  • Loading and Preloading
  • Filter with as2
  • Playing with Flash Video (flv)
  • Zip source.

    ActionScript 3.0 Books are here !

    as3 rough cuts
    I just discover at O’Reilly that the new book from Colin Moock is out in “Rough Cuts Version”.
    It’s really time to learn AS3 and even more for people only used to develop using a non object oriented programming language.
    The publication date for Essential ActionSript 3.0 is in June 2007, but with rough cuts you can already read some chapter.

    as3 cookbookIf you are more in a hurry with AS3 you can also check the really good “ActionScript 3.0 Cookbook” (By Joey Lott, Darron Schall, Keith Peters ), this one is already out of stock at the time I write, but printed. Maybe your are lucky enough to find one in your library.

    YouTube could soon be snapped up by Google

    WSJ:

    […]Web-search giant Google is in talks to acquire YouTube for roughly $1.6 billion, a person familiar with the matter says. An acquisition of the closely held company would catapult Google to the lead spot in online video at a moment when consumers are rapidly increasing the amount of time they spend viewing video clips online, and Internet video advertising is booming.
    […]A purchase of YouTube would give a big boost to the online-video efforts of Google. YouTube commanded 46% of visits to U.S. online-video sites in September, according to market-research firm Hitwise. That compared with a 21% share for the video activities of News Corp.’s MySpace site and 11% for Google Video. Microsoft Corp., which recently launched a test version of its Soapbox service for users to submit and view videos, had a 7% share of such visits, according to Hitwise. News Corp. in the past expressed interest in discussing a possible acquisition with YouTube, say people familiar with the matter. News Corp. declined to comment.[…]

    It’s not everyday that I can praise the University where I’m studying. So for once we got somethings really cool, I can’t stop myself blogging about it 😉
    So here the news, the Ejacket Coordinator (intermedia) is MIRALab, University of Geneva (CH) (Prof. Magnenat-Thalmann). Congrats !

    Miralab:

    […]NoE INTERMEDIA will build a i-jacquet that will contain all personal information that everyone wishes to keep all the time with himself or herself. The i-jacquet will be able to communicate and exchange information with any electronic device[…]

    […]investigate a flexible wearable platform that supports dynamic composition of wearable devices, an ad-hoc connection to devices in the environment, a continuous access to multimedia networks, as well as adaptation of content to devices and user context. INTERMEDIA’s main goal is to generate a shared vision of user-centric multimedia services for modern nomadic people, who has high level of mobility and is connected to network for most of times. The main goal is achieved through three main objectives: 1)Vision toward device-free user-centric media environments; 2) Constructing multidisciplinary research groups; 3) Building a common platform with a vision towards semantic convergence[…]

    With Lumalive, clothes already took a very interesting perspective but now it’s totally different : clever clothes.
    I can’t wait to do some RIA on my jacket 😉

    IMEI and Flash Lite Bug with Bluetooth

    logo Flash lite
    I recently have noticed a bug in my Flash Lite app, the Imei Number (Identification Number of Mobile Phone) won’t show sometime, first I thought about an error of my part, but the same application would sometimes work and some other time won’t.
    Well it’s seems that when you got a Bluetooth link working, your Imei Number won’t be accessible.
    I tested only on my device (N90) but i was wondering if anyone else did notice this bug or if it’s only related to N90, Symbian8.1a-Series60v2-FP3.
    Anyway if you got this bug don’t look further, the only solution I found by now is to simply link off your Bluetooth and then “sans problème” the Imei will show 😉
