Moving to johnlindquist.com

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010 | announcements | 62 Comments and 0 Reactions

I’ve launched a variety of blogs in my time (pv3d.org, flex4.org, fp10.org) to try and keep content on-topic and, shamelessly, to try and get good google search rankings.

For the past few months, I’ve been focusing on frameworks in Flash, so instead of creating “flashframeworks.org” (or something similar) I’ve decided to just consolidate all my posts back to johnlindquist.com. So, from this post forward, any new content I create whether it’s related to pv3d, flex, flash, unity, php, silverlight, wordpress etc, etc, etc, will all be posted to johnlindquist.com. I will leave all the current content up here on pv3d.org (over 100 examples!) and I’m forwarding a few of the most popular posts to johnlindquist.com to push traffic that way.

AsyncCommand with Robotlegs, Signals, Flight, MinimalComps

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010 | examples | 2 Comments and 0 Reactions

I watched Jesse Warden’s presentation at FATC over the weekend on Gaia + Robotlegs. It was a great presentation and he was a bit rushed so he didn’t get to explain the importance of his AsyncCommand slide. I threw this together to show my typical approach:

*note – I recorded in 1280×720 to upload to YouTube HD hosting, but they rejected it since it’s a little over 10 minutes.

Man, long time, no post.

This video comes from a chat I was having with Renaun Erickson, Garth Braithwaite, and Jac Wright about the value of watching someone work towards a specific goal. So, this video isn’t really a tutorial, it’s more of me just building a search widget and talking about it as I go. Anyway, here it is:

FDT Super Awesome March Deal

It’s no secret that I love FDT. The above link is a special promotion FDT is putting on for the month of March that allows you to save a few hundred $$$ on FDT by showing them you already own a competing product (usually Flex Builder).

I completely agree with everything Jesse wrote in this post: http://flashartofwar.com/2010/03/12/why-you-should-invest-in-fdt/. (Jesse and I actually work together now and talk about “workflow” quite a bit.) I’m not going to repeat what Jesse said. I just wanted to add that a lot of Papervision3D was developed in FDT and it has been an invaluable tool. I always forget how great FDT is until I switch back to Flex Builder and lose all the amazing shortcuts and conveniences FDT gives me.

Anyway, read Jesse’s article and support FDT for all the reasons he listed. Lastly, here’s a few FDT guys to follow on twitter if you have any questions:
