Speakers bios:

Franklin Davis: As Head of Business Development for Nokia’s Web Browser for S60, Franklin Davis is working with Internet companies and organizations towards creation of a rich mobile browsing ecosystem. The new browser enables a full Web browsing experience on mobile devices, based on the WebCore and JavaScriptCore open source components that are used by Apple’s Safari Internet browser. These components are based on KDE’s Konqueror open source project. This software has enabled Nokia to achieve improvements in Web site usability on smartphones through the re-use of a proven desktop rendering engine that has been developed and optimized by a large open source community over many years.. Collaboration of S60 with the open source community will fuel innovation and ensure support for the latest Web technologies.

Franklin is passionate about enabling people to find information and services, aiming to create “Addictive Mobile Browsing”–make mobile access to the Web so interesting, easy, and valuable that people will use it all the time. He has a masters in software engineering and 25 years experience in the software industry.

James Talbot: James has been with Adobe (formerly Macromedia) for over six years, on both the sales engineering and training teams, and has most recently been working with Flex and Flash Lite. He has traveled extensively throughout the world promoting Adobe products and certifying Adobe instructors as well as speaking at conferences. He has written Object Oriented ActionScript 2.0 published by New Riders Press and is currently working on a book about Flex Builder and ActionScript 3 to be published in May. James has been an integral team member on high profile Rich Internet Application consulting assignments for companies such as AOL/Time Warner, JP Morgan and TV Guide.

James is actively involved in the Adobe worldwide instructor and developer community, and contributes to developer certification exams as well as organizing and speaking at user groups. James is passionate about Flash on devices as well as rich internet applications and believes both technologies will change the world for the better.
