SPECIAL ADOBE EVENT - THE FUTURE OF FLASH

Join us for an evening with Mike Chambers & Lee Brimlow from Adobe. This will be a good opportunity to speak directly with Adobe, ask questions, and discuss recent changes around the Flash Player.


The Future of Flash – Mike Chambers
In this session, Mike will lead a discussion around recent changes and announcements around the Flash Platform. He will then spend some time laying out the roadmap for the Flash Player, and discuss the direction in which the player will evolve, including the general focus of the player and the ActionScript language and AVM (ActionScript Virtual Machine). In addition to discussing the Flash roadmap, we will be showing off the latest Flash and Adobe AIR content, give some sneak peeks on upcoming releases, and setting aside plenty of time for open discussions and Q&A.


Adobe Gaming Technology – Lee Brimlow
In this session Gaming Evangelist Lee Brimelow will reveal the latest technologies being worked on by Adobe for game developers. They will show how these technologies allow developers to create casual 2D games in addition to AAA 3D games. Current best practices will also be discussed.

    Great presentation by Mike and Lee from Adobe. They did their best to clear up some of the misinformation out there regarding the future of Flash. I believe the future is a lot brighter than some folks think.

    I wish the second presenter had gone first. Too many audience members quibling over semantics at the first half.

    It was painful to see key Flash people telling us to study HTML. It would be nice if Flash would integrate with HTM5. I hope they can reach some arrangement with Google to let the Flash player work on Websites from Android. I realize they need to support high-performance graphics but to me that is of little interest.
