Adobe, Day and open development

Thanks to everyone at Adobe MAX 2010 who came to the session that David Nuescheler, Roy Fielding and I presented. If you weren’t able to attend our session, it’s provided below.

Roy kicked off the discussion by talking about open development and how open development is critical to architecture. David followed Roy by showing how open development principles have been powerfully applied at Day to its products like CQ5, providing live demonstrations to our audience. I wrapped up this discussion by relating WCM and Day content infrastructure (e.g. Sling and CRX) to Adobe’s CEM platform and specifically to LiveCycle RIA. (For more detail on LiveCycle RIA and other aspects of the LiveCycle ES3 release, which is currently under development, please see my previous post.)

In order to keep the conversation going, I’ve uploaded this presentation as follows:

Update 11/5/2010: You can now watch and listen to this MAX session online (i.e. in synchronized fashion).

Update 12/3/2010: Jayan has done a nice job of rounding up LiveCycle-flavored MAX sessions, including this one, here.

Realizing great customer experiences with LiveCycle ES3

Thanks to everyone at Adobe MAX 2010 who came to the sessions that I presented. I enjoyed the interactivity during after after the presentations, especially listening to your thoughts on how Adobe CEM will enable you to realize your own customer experience vision as well as the growing expectations of your prospects, consumers, customers and clients.

In order to keep the conversation going, I’ve uploaded this presentation as follows:

Realizing Great Customer Experiences with Adobe® LiveCycle® ES3 – Craig Randall

Whether you were able to attend MAX or not, I encourage you to check out MAX 2010 on Adobe TV (e.g. here are the keynotes). Please also visit the MAX 2010 session catalog to browse all sessions and download presentations of interest.

Update 11/5/2010: You can now watch and listen to this MAX session online (i.e. in synchronized fashion). It appears that the good folks at MAX decided to post the slides and recording that corresponded to my first delivery (on Monday during MAX). While that session went well, I did receive some feedback that I incorporated into a revised deck that was also recorded (on Wednesday during MAX). Personally, I liked the latter content and delivery better than the first, and that is what is provided here in this blog post, above.

Allison ignited

The closing event for Day Ignite Chicago 2010 was a real treat: a private concert by the Bernard Allison Group at House of Blues® Chicago.

Bernard Allison Group at House of Blues® Chicago on 10/14/2010

The band, left to right:

  • Jose James (sax, backing vocals, percussion)
  • Bernard Allison (guitar, vocals, keyboards)
  • Erick Ballard (drums)
  • George Moye (bass guitar)
  • Toby Marshall (keyboards)

This first video–all were taken with my iPhone and uploaded directly to YouTube; so, the quality isn’t the best–is the group opening without Bernard, playing the first track off their latest album The Otherside: “Send It In” (2:42).

The second video above is “The Otherside”–track #5 off their latest album of the same name (6:01). At the beginning of the video, Bernard introduces the band.

The third video above is the group going Hendrix, playing the Jimi Hendrix classic, “Fire”–also the 11th track on The Otherside. Around the 5:57 mark, Bernard introduces Erick Ballard for a substantial drum solo that earned him the evening nickname of “The Energizer Bunny” :-) (12:34).

The fourth video above is a two-song medley that highlights various band members (8:39).

The fifth video above is a bass solo by George Moye (4:10).

I recorded another video that occurred in between the fourth and fifth videos above; however, it was 15:40 in duration and YouTube doesn’t accept videos longer than 15 minutes currently.

When content meets applications

Thanks to everyone at Day Ignite Chicago 2010 who came to the technical track session that Alex and I presented–especially those who stood the entire time in a packed room.

In order to keep the conversation going, I’ve uploaded this presentation as follows:

We’re very excited at Adobe about the opportunity to work with those at Day Software as fellow colleagues. By working together with you, we believe that great things will emerge from the unified delivery of content plus applications.

P.S. If you’re not already watching the #dayignite tweetstream, why not? ;-)

Update 10/18/2010: Irina Guseva published her thoughts on this presentation on CMS Wire: “Apps as Content, or How Day and Adobe May Fit Together.”

Update 10/22/2010: Presentations from Day Ignite Chicago 2010 are appearing here. Presentations that will also be delivered during Day Ignite Berlin 2010 won’t appear on Slideshare until after both events have concluded. (That being said, you can see a thorough write-up of David Nuescheler’s presentation here.) Event photos from Chicago are here.

Update on 10/27/2010: The message first delivered in Chicago around the unified delivery of content and applications was expanded upon in Los Angeles at Adobe MAX 2010, and that presentation is now available here.
