After SOTR London in June I scheduled in a few months to recover but a new round of conferences is fast approaching. Prompted by Scott Janousek doing a similar post here is my list of conferences for September and October:
- September 14-15 - The ActionScript Conference - Singapore
- September 20-23 - Flash on the Beach - Brighton
- October 4-7 - Adobe MAX - Los Angeles
I'm working on new presentations for each of these. For Adobe MAX I'll do a session called "Community Matters" all about the online Flash Platform community, open source initiatives and Adobe's various community programs. At Flash on the Beach I'll be presenting "The Secret Life of a Flash Freelancer" talking about what it takes and how to survive as a freelancer in this industry.
I've got something special planned for The ActionScript Conference, not quite ready to give it away yet, if it all works out you'll see some cool things including AIR and BitmapData manipulation.
Of these three conference The ActionScript Conference is the youngest, but definitely worth attending if you've got the opportunity -- not in the least because Singapore is a fantastic place and the organizers and the Singapore Flex User Group members a great bunch of people. This year they'll make it a two day event at the One Marina Boulevard auditorium, I can't wait!
I'll be hanging around for a few days before or after each conference, so if you're in the area and would like to meet up feel free to drop me a line.
