Checking In from Adobe MAX

We've just completed our main presentation at MAX, a session on the Inspire track entitled "Yahoo Loves You." Here's what you missed, if you weren't there:

Yesterday morning, Ryan Kennedy presented AIR Mail, an AIR application based on Dav Glass's Candygram Lite, using Yahoo! Mail's open API and the YUI libraries.

We spent the day at the Yahoo! booth in the community pavillion, giving away t-shirts to attendees brave enough to show us their kung fu. No, you don't have to throw any roundhouse kicks, although one developer did. We were more interested in seeing what you were doing on your own sites, and where we could help, with tools like the YUI library and YSlow. We're back today and tomorrow, so please come by and see us if you haven't already done so.

Also at MAX, Adobe launched the new-and-improved Adobe Developer Connection, their portal for developers to all things Adobe. Particularly interesting is the ADC introNetwork, a social network for developers who want to connect to other developers based on their professional background, skills, and personality traits. Kudos to team leader Jonathan Wall, and congratulations on choosing the Yahoo! User Interface library to help power ADC.
