I’m pleased to announce that I will be speaking at 360|Flex next month alongside some of the best talent in the Flex community. I’ll be filling the time slot that originally belonged to Tom Gonzalez with a session titled Getting the most out of Axiis.
At the last 360 Tom gave a talk that accompanied the alpha release of Axiis, and I did some on-stage coding, demonstrating how to build a custom visualization. A few months later we gave a similar talk at CFUnited about a more polished beta release, and Tom gave a solo talk about the framework at MAX. I want this coming session to be accessible to people who didn’t attend those talks but still be interesting to our previous audience members and users. I’ll briefly cover the back-story (what Axiis is and what problems it solves) and the basics of the framework to bring everyone up to speed, but the meat of the session will be about usage tips and tricks. My hope is that regardless of experience, everyone comes out to the session with a stronger sense of what they can accomplish with Axiis and how.
Here’s the description as it appears on the schedule:
During this session we’ll dive headfirst into the Axiis data visualization framework. We’ll start with the basics — the Axiis render cycle and using the built in visualizations — and get into more advanced topics — creating custom visualizations, adding interactivity, and addressing performance bottlenecks. No prior knowledge of Axiis is required.
The session is at 4:30 on the last day of the conference. See you there!
