Back at Ackerman McQueen

I worked at the advertising agency Ackerman McQueen back in 2002. We had an excellent team and did some interesting work, however due to strange circumstances they let the team go. Well, here it is 8 years later and I find myself back at AM. They are extremely busy and have some interesting cutting edge projects going on. We are currently doing .NET/Umbraco CMS/XSLT development for a large national client.

Flex Degrafa Meter

The Degrafa graphics framework for Flex is very slick. I have been using it on my flex real-time monitoring applications. Here is a configurable meter that I created using Degrafa. Feel free to use it if you find it useful.

Adobe Max

Just got back from Adobe Max! 3 very full days of Flex and ColdFusion. They put on an excellent event.

Some of the presentations are on AdobeTV. The presentation by Deepa Subramaniam on Creating New Components in Flex 3 & Beyond was the most informative session I attended. Very in-depth and excellent presentation.

TORO Bowie Pre-race Recon

Got a new High Def camcorder for helmetcam footage (Aiptek Action HD).  SD card video cams are getting so small and light now!  I just mounted the camcorder directly to my helmet.  Didn’t even use a special helmet cam set up.  Quality is much better and set up is easier.  No more wires and batteries to contend with.

Pricing Configurator

The pricing model for the company I work for is very complex. Even the sales people have a difficult time giving customers accurate pricing. I put together a pricing configurator in Flex for the sales force and customers to easily configure their products and view accurate pricing. The application is driven off a master pricing xml file and is flexible to handle many different pricing options.
