Alec McEachran, Lead Software Engineer at Kabam, introducing Entity Systems.
An increasingly popular way of organizing game code that was originally developed by the console gaming industry. Entity Systems can help you build games more quickly and elegantly, just as the enterprise and web world uses MVC.
Find out how Entity Systems can:
• help you produce highly modular, low-complexity code;
• produce high-performance code;
• integrate with other frameworks for the main game shell;
• tweak gameplay and build levels within the runtime.

Daniel Sperl, Framework Architect of Starling, an Open Source Game Engine for Flash, will share with us some “Insider Tips”.
Starling is a pure ActionScript 3 library that mimics the conventional Flash display list architecture. In contrast to conventional display objects, however, all content is rendered directly by the GPU — providing a rendering performance unlike anything before. This is made possible by Flash's "Stage3D" technology.
