FlashinTO Gathering v110.0

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. We are working on the schedule for the upcoming event, and will post details as soon as they are available.

Location: waiting on confirmation



What the Heck(s) Up with Flex?
Edward Apostol will be presenting the current state of Apache (formerly Adobe Flex), detailing some of the recent history of it as a platform, what is currently happening with it from a technical perspective, and illustrate a demo illustrating its installation and usage.

Hoss Gifford

A talk by Hoss Gifford about a journey that always seemed to be linear in nature, creativity and technology, but turns out to be cyclical. This time round Hoss has moved across an ocean to run an innovation lab in Toronto, and he's here to share the catalog of errors that got him here. A catalog of errors that will, in time, be post rationalised to sound strategic.

And you'll be interested to hear that Hoss isn't doing this talk for the appearance fee and the champagne alone, as he will be trying to find out from you if the brightest, most adaptable tinkerers can still be found in the Flash community.

    A really great get together. Lots of new and old faces. People meeting new people. Finding jobs. Learning stuff. All our goals were accomplished.

    Very interesting. The presentation on Flex really did bring the very latest news on it, with loads of useful links and info. Hoss' presentation was a nice contrast with the technical replaced by a stand up comedian's kind of humour channelled through a lot of amazing quotes and video content. As for the accent... well if you can understand Simon, you can understand Hoss...I'd say it is a plus...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
