Yesterday starts Flash on the Beach, the 4th edition, it’s more big, more interesting, more…
There are many guys from USA and other part of world and is fantastic because you can share and talk with all of them, I love it.
First amanzing news is that FOTB next year become also FOTBM… Flash on the Beach MIAMI in April, and this a big success for FOTB organizations, 4 years of great work and now they start to export own format, congratulations guys.
I followed great sessions yesterday, the most amazing were Tink one, that talking about Flex Effects, he are making a great job; Thermo and Flex 4 was very interesting, in particular when speaker talked about FXG format, I think a lots of thing about this interesting new way to define a FLEX UI.
In the evening there were 2 inspire sessions that were amazing, 2 great Actionscript artist showed us how to use Flash in different way to create great artwork.
So now I’m in a new FOTB day, at Aral Balkan session… he is a showman!
During this weekend, I’ll put some photos about FOTB in my Flickr account, don’t miss them!
Second day at FotB was better than first!
If English people said: “God save the Queen”, I say: “God save Mario Klingemann“… he is a big geek and a showman!
You can find Mario’s preso directly in quasimondo.com (his blog), so Mario show us how to use BitmapData class and create very cool effect. It was an amazing session and it registered SOLD OUT.
Another big preso was Ted Patrick‘s session where he explain us the worst practice to use Flex! Ted is a big speaker, in few slides he show us what we could do to create solid and good projects, very interesting.
So now I’m starting the last day here… talking with Mr. Davey, that organizes FotB, he said me that next year FotB probably starts in the end of September, so take a space in your agenda and come in Brighton!
First day at FOTB was fantastic, speakers prepared great session, in particular inspire sessions are crazy!!!
Joshua Davis is an amazing speaker so cool presentation!
But another amazing thing is after the first inspire session where out of Pavillion Theatre the guys of Plug-in Media create a flash installation where you can interact with and when you move yourself starts from some areas one or more fireworks, very crazy!
After this we came to Brighton Casino and we gambled and eat all night!
When I’ll come back in Italy, I’ll create a Flickr account and put in all FOTB and Chicago MAX photos there.
And now I’ll start a new FOTB day! What amazing event!
