Presentation


Overview

Creating multi-user applications can be challenging for frontend developers that aren’t comfortable with server solutions. However with Instant Messaging services starting to release plugin systems, you can create realtime two-user applications with an exposed API. Best of all, you get access to the large IM user base without having to have your own servers. In this session we will build a simple two player game, and a whiteboarding tool.

Who this presentation is for:
Developers

What Attendees Will Walk Away With:
Attendees should leave feeling comfortable with the basics of connecting a Flash application up to an IM server API using the External Interface object. From there the attendees should know where to look to find more information on the particulars of each API so that they can build their own.
