Hey there Flashers
Hope all is well with you.
In celebration of Internet Week Europe we've got some special Web tech sessions. This one is hosted by the extremely talented Andrew Dobson who is the technical Director at Grand Union.
Flash and HTML5: A Call for Sanity
Ever since the infamous ‘thoughts on flash’ letter that Steve Jobs wrote in 2010, Flash has been regarded as a dying technology, abandoned in favour of HTML5 and web standards. But is HTML5 really ready for the rich media prime-time, and does Flash really have nothing left to give? In this talk, I’ll explore some areas where Flash is continuing to make a huge impact both in and beyond the browser, cut through some of the confusion, PR fails, and straight up deception in the front end wars and share some ideas on the appropriate use cases for both Flash and HTML5 in the ever changing digital landscape.
To paraphrase Douglas Adams: if flash is dead then it hasn’t stopped moving yet.
Who should attend: All flavours of digital professional from designers and developers at the creative coalface to product owners and marketeers. We’ll have a bit of code, a bit of inspiration, a bit of fanboy-baiting and some jolly good common sense.
