Flash Camp Manchester 2010

The latest Flash Camp event was held in Manchester last week, and was a day-long series of talks designed to inspire Flash and RIA developers - a 'taster' as we were told during the brief warm up.
Right off the bat everyone who went got a bunch of awesome freebies, from Thermos mugs to Adobe Rubik cubes, full copies of the FDT ActionScript IDE and a free film from the blinkbox streaming site; fairly awesome for a free event.

THE CURRENT STATE OF MOBILE UX
Anthony & Jerome Ribot (Ribot)

Antony and Jerome are co-founders of Ribot - a design lab specialising in enjoyable small screen interfaces and experiences. They're not Flash specific.
Over the last 20 years they've seen the world move from analogue to digital, but much more recently gone human - there isn't a third party any more (like a mouse) between the the experience and the user.
They explained that mobile is very constrained (RAM and display size, network latency, etc.) but this gives you scope and focus- a challenge.

Installing Adobe AIR on OpenSuSE using official repository

All modern Linux distributions have a concept of keeping themselves up to date with an online system of 'repositories' of applications that anyone can run.
Adobe have handily set one up for their AIR runtime, and provide instructions for RPM based systems that use 'yum' (like Fedora and RedHat) and DEB based systems that use 'apt' (like Ubuntu and Debian).
Although OpenSuSE can use yum, by default it has it's own 'zypper' system, but it can use the RPM repository anyway.

What does AIR application install error "Error# 5100" mean ?

Sometimes when installing an AIR application, the installer refuses to proceed with the mysterious 'Error# 5100'.
This doesn't appear to be documented anywhere, but it actually means the temporary file space is full (i.e. /tmp/ on Linux).

Guess the 100meg cap on my tmpfs wasn't enough, eh :-)
