Four of Seven RIM PlayBook Demos by Sheridan Grads!

February 28, 2011

RIM Blackberry Playbook Tablet

Research in Motion (RIM) came in to the FITO user group – one of the largest Flash user groups in the world to demonstrate apps running on their new tablet, the PlayBook.  The audience of over 100 developers and designers found the speed, interface and quality of the Playbook to be just dandy – it was nice to get my hands on one even for a short time.

What was really nice to see for us at Sheridan was that Three of the demonstrators of apps running on the Playbook were from our Interactive Multimedia Program and two other presenters are with Jam 3 which was started by IMM’ers and another speaker was from the Sheridan Computer Graphics program.  So that left only one presenter, Matt Rix of TrainYard fame (and fortune) as the non-Sheridan connection.  Matt’s ScoreKeeper app looked and ran great – super interface work.

Sunil John (IMM2010) presented his 3D Robot Skinning App, Salpy Kelian (IMM2009) showed a recipe app, Matt Fabb (IMM2001) showed a StickerYou app and Hugh Elliot (CG1999) showed his haiku movie sorting app.  Both Salpy and Sunil are with Jam 3 so they had four presenters there that night – wow!

Sheridan IMM Program Coordinator of Curriculum, Dan Zen, attended and is now currently creating a PlayBook app using Flash Builder Burrito – and digging the tooling.  He says, “I find it a lot easier, straight-forward and powerful compared to the xCode / Interface Builder on the Mac for iOS – but then again, I have been working with Adobe tools for years. ”  The experiences of working with Mobile can somewhat be found on the facebook – Flash to Mobile group we started.
