UPDATE: The Miami conference has been canceled due to lack of attendees. This is very sad news, but in an economy like this it’s not really surprising. Guess we’ll just have to wait for September for our dose of Flash on the Beach.
If you are still looking for a Flash/Design conference to attend this summer, I highly recommend Flashbelt.
The best European Flash conference is heading to the states this spring. Flash on the Beach has been happening in Brighton, UK for the last few years and is such a good time, I think everyone should go.
I’ll be heading down to Miami this year to talk about YouTube type things, so if you are curious about using YouTube for a project, or just interested in hearing some stories about a very high performance Flash application, you should come to my session :).
In case you are interested, there’s tons of pictures and writing about past FotB events all over the place. So check it out, and hopefully I’ll see you there.
There’s a pretty cool conference going on this weekend (starts tomorrow!) with tons of awesome speakers, and it’s all online!
The <head> Conference takes place online (via Acrobat Connect) or in a few local hubs around the world. Its going on all weekend, and there’s a ton of interesting talks, so you should check it out.
I’ll be giving a talk at the San Francisco (actually closer to San Jose) hub all about the YouTube video players on Friday at 11am.
Are you interested in the various API services that YouTube offers? Are you going to be in the bay area this Thursday? Then why not stop by Powered by YouTube?
It’s taking place at the San Bruno YouTube office this Thursday, July 10th from 10:30am to 5:30pm.
Here’s the blurb about it:
Powered By YouTube is a developer gathering focused on bringing together developers to learn more about the YouTube APIs and Tools. Spend the day at YouTube’s headquarters and learn how to bring YouTube to your website, share best practices, and get hands-on with the APIs. Meet fellow YouTube API developers across a wide range of companies, YouTube engineers and product managers, and leave inspired to enhance your user experience with the YouTube APIs.
Also: It’s free, and you get a free lunch.
I’ve been invited back to speak at Flash on the Beach this year. I’ll be giving a talk about the YouTube player APIs and how you can use YouTube in your online projects.
Flash on the Beach is a fantastic conference in Brighton at the end of September, and it’s one of the best Flash and design conferences to check out.
Registration is now open, so if you’re looking for an excuse to head to the UK, this is it.
Also, next week is Google I/O (Flight of the Conchords are playing a show there!), which I believe still has a few tickets available, and just next month I’ll be heading off to Flashbelt in Minneapolis, so come say ‘Hi’ if you see me wandering around either of these events.
I put this little demo together in preparation for the hack-a-thon this Thursday.
Check it out.
