Flash Camp Manchester

In a little over two weeks I’ll be speaking at Flash Camp Manchester, which is a first for me as I’ve never been to Manchester so I’m really looking forward to it. For those who are considering attending there are some great speakers and sessions.

I will be presenting a session entitled “Developing with your inner designer” where I’ll be looking at how you can harness Flash Professional CS5, Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder 4 to improve your designer / developer workflow. There will be some code, but for the first time in a very long time I’ll be focusing on the abilities of each of these products and where you can leverage their core strengths.


My friend and colleague Mark Doherty will be there talking about Flash and AIR on mobile and devices, Edwin van Rijkom will be giving an introduction to OSMF (the Open Source media Framework). Michael Plank from Powerflasher will also be there showing you how to improve your coding workflow with FDT. Anthony and Jeremy Ribot will be discussing the current state of mobile UX and Seb Lee-Delisle rounds the day out with a ‘space busting’ Papervision 3D session.

The overall session shapes up as follows:
