One of the coolest Flex based RIA applications showcased during the Javapolis 2007 convention was the beta of the new Parleys.com website. Parleys hosts all videos and presentations from Javapolis and other BeJUG organized events and is great source of information for Java developers to stay current.
Now version 2 is available for testing at http://www.parleys.com/display/PARLEYS/Parleys.com+V2+BETA+Program
Be sure to check out the online version and the desktop version (showcasing Adobe AIR technology). As a JSF/Richfaces/AJAX developer I’m impressed by the speed & look ‘n feel of the site. Having to implement the below requirements is certainly not easy either with the traditional set of Java web tools.
- Full screen viewing of talks
- Add comments and tags in the presentation time line
- Bookmark talks and slides and forward them to a friend
- Change slide transitions
