Building scalable and full-featured real-time collaboration applications requires integrating a lot of different pieces. I outline how Octopz built and evolved a collaborative application using Flex, Coldfusion, and FMS and then show how Adobe’s Hosted Services could change the game. Adobe’s Hosted Services were designed as the foundation you can build your own collaborative applications on. Cocomo, Share, and Pacifica not only provide new features for collaboration but using them may save you an enormous amount of work. This presentation reviews the services, how they work, and how they might change the way we build the next generation of real-time applications.
Developers interested in collaborative applications.
Good overview of what’s involved in building full-featured collaborative applications and how hosted services can help.
