"Remember, remember the Fifth of November" After doing the Flashforward, MAX Chicago and MAX Barcelona conferences just in the last two months -- I almost decided against going to this years edition of Flash on the Beach in Brighton.
Luckily that temporary loss of sanity soon made way and I will indeed make it to one of the very best Flash conferences out there. John Davey did an amazing job last year and I'm sure this year will be even better. The FOTB parties are legendary and with Guy Fawkes night on the Monday it promises to be spectacular.
I'm not speaking this year so should have lots of time to hang out with friends and colleagues and make the most of this last conference of 2007.
As has become tradition by now, here is a list of sessions I'm planning to attend:
Monday, November 5th Keynote - Richard Galvan AS3 Particle Effects - Now 1000% Extra FREE! - Seb Lee-Delisle Story. Branding. Visual design. - Chris Orwig Make Flash Games. Retire Early. - Keith Peters The rest of the iceberg - Hoss Gifford Breaking away - Robert Hodgin If it aint broke - break it! - Brendan Dawes
Tuesday, November 6th Flex and ActionScript 3 Worst Practices - Ted Patrick Perceptive Interactions + Alternative Interfaces - Craig Swann 2D or not 2D that is the question - Mario Klingemann Mobile Flash Development - Dave Yang Flashing Flex - Tink Dynamic Abstraction - Joshua Davis Beyond the Knowledge: The Art of Playing - Erik Natzke
