Happy New Year

By Nat Robinson on January 10, 2008

It’s a new year and a new day for presentations and we’re excited to bring you all some updates. Thanks to everyone who’s emailed us and asked what’s happening with SlideRocket. The short story is that we’ve been very busy these past few months. There’s a ton of interest and excitement about our next-generation presentation software and it’s only fair we let you in on what we’ve been working on.

Update #1 SlideRocket is hiring! If you’re a developer looking for the next challenge and love RIA’s (rich internet applications) then we want to talk to you. Check the job post here ( and let us know why you love SlideRocket.

Update #2 We hired a marketing guy. That would be me, Nat Robinson. A marketing genius with over 15 years in information technology, I’m psyched to be part of the SlideRocket family and working hard to bring you an incredible set of presentation tools with amazing value and a minimum of marketing gobbledygook ;-)

Update #3 We’ve been working on our workgroup functionality to allow teams to seamlessly collaborate on presentations. This is one of the key elements our beta testers have asked for and it’s coming with features like versioning, concurrent editing and multi-level access control. These features will allow your teams to collectively build and iterate your presentations in real-time, direct who can view/edit which slides, and create and distribute different versions for different audiences as your needs require. Very, very cool.

2008 is off to a great start. Stay tuned, more updates coming soon!

    Good luck with the change Nat! You bring a lot of experience to the SlideRocket team.

    Two questions:

    – Does SlideRocket support UTF-8 characters?

    – Can I export completed presentations back to the desktop? The product tour is really slow in China and I won’t be able to use the service until the lag is corrected.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the questions.

    1. It depends on what you mean by support UTF-8 characters. SlideRocket is written in Flex 3 so we inherit all the capabilities of Flex. If you’re asking, will SlideRocket support multi-byte character sets the answer is ultimately yes.

    2. Yes it will be possible to export presentations back to the desktop. We’ll be using AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) to create a desktop editor / player so that you can work with your presentations when you’re offline. We will additionally support PowerPoint export.

    3. Sorry to hear you’re having performance problems. Given we’re still in private BETA we’re still in the process of tuning and ramping so please bear with us. If you’re willing to do some more testing for us please send us your email to

    Thanks for your interest and stay tuned.

    Go collaboration and version control, go! Keep me on the short list to know when this is in testable shape. Greatly looking forward to that.

    This looks extremely promising and solves a tremendous number of business problems when it comes to creating online presentations and sharing them live. We developed our first flex application last year and I can see you have really tapped the value of the platform. We only scratched the surface.

    I hope I find myself in the beta soon. If this is an effective application I can see it becoming central to our business and our client’s business’s. Congrats guys… I’ve excited for you and the clients that will be empowered beyond their existing walls.

    First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

    It’s great that you are getting ideas from this post as well as from our argument made here.

    I am grateful for your post. I’d like to say that the expense of car insurance varies from one insurance policy to another, for the reason that there are so many different issues which bring about the overall cost. For example, the make and model of the car will have a tremendous bearing on the cost. A reliable aged family auto will have a more affordable premium over a flashy fancy car.

    Good website! I truly love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified when a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a great day!

    You’ll find some intriguing points in time in this write-up but I do not know if I see all of them center to heart. There’s some validity but I will take hold opinion till I appear into it further. Beneficial article , thanks and we want more!
