Topic: Extending the language of Fusebox

Sean Corfield (Adobe System Inc.)

We're used to the XML language of application frameworks being a static, fixed thing. If it doesn't let you do what you want, you're out of luck. Not so with Fusebox 5! This recent release lets you define your own verbs, which offers a much richer, more expressive way to build applications. This session will briefly walk you through the architecture of Fusebox and then dive into how to use third party custom lexicons as well as how to write your own language extensions. Enjoy the power of higher-level abstractions without the performance penalties they so often bring!

Prerequisites: Familiarity with XML-powered application frameworks. Specific knowledge of Fusebox is not required. February 1st & 2nd 2007
