Each month FlashinTO hosts a monthly 'gathering' of people. Designers, developers, and anyone else interested in chatting and seeing some cool presentations and mingling and meeting some others in the industry. All are welcome.

Mix & Mingle

HTML5 and Flash: Why the need to compete?
Flash isn't dead, Flash will never be dead…maybe. But like the print industry, it will adapt and embrace it's cohort HTML. Using appropriate technologies to perform the needs of your communication and interaction will be the key to developing in a modern and future web. Join us in learning how to implement native technologies where once only capable by the third party plugin.

    Hadn't gone in awhile, but was glad I decided to go this month. There were many new faces which is always great to see. Presentations were good, however I'm more interested in the direction in which this seems to be going in. I think the changes will not only create more movement for our group but also bring in new ideas that will surely get our creative juices flowing. Whether it be through, code, or design perspectives. See you all next month.

    I think the 'official' widening of interest sphere beyond Flash makes sense and is in line with what Adobe is doing itself. I also think that those who attended the last few years already knew that 'unofficially' in practice this 'widening' was already a fact.
    Rightly so it was made abundantly clear that we are talking about technologies that supplement each there rather than replace each other. Which of course also implies that 'Flash' is far from on the way out.

    Experience was good - it was good to see old friends and meet some new ones. Seems like we have found a spot for a while - hope to see more people out for the next one!

    First time attending and I'll definitely be back! Glad to see that they're considering the future of Flash and how it relates to other technologies.

    It was good to see some interesting projects that had been created using Flash technology, it was also good to here from Matthew Potter about the state of HTML5 and where they can learn from us and where we can learn from them.

    The conversation about the direction of the group was interesting as well and I am interested to see where this goes in the coming months.
