Its been a couple of years since I last spoke at a Flashforward event but am really looking forward to present at the next edition in Boston, MA -- September 19th through the 21st. I'll be doing a session entitled "OOP for the Noob", basically a non-threatening introduction to the world of object-oriented code in ActionScript 3.0. I'll talk about programming best practices, concepts like inheritance, encapsulation and polymorphism and cover some basic design patterns you'll be able to easily apply and take advantage of in your own projects.

The guys and gals at Flashforward were kind enough to hook me up with a discount code for any of my blog readers that want to attend, see below. It'll be my first trip down to Boston, if you're in the area be sure to drop me a line to meet up.
