Flash on the beach 2011
Brighton rocked at Flash on the Beach 2011. The conference was a great mix of speakers on software development, design and inspiration.
Topics under discussion included AIR 3.0 and Stage 3D (molehill). Adobe had speakers on stage giving the lowdown on what we can expect from the next releases. Stage 3D will give the Flash Player the equivalent graphics capability of the original Xbox.
Remy Sharp gave a talk on HTML 5.0, it’s strong points and it’s limitations. He emphasised that it should be horses for courses when deciding whether to use Flash/Air or HTML 5.0 for a project. Each has strengths and drawbacks in terms of compatibility.
There was plenty on offer for techies, designers and artists. I’d recommend it for anybody thinking of going. My early bird ticket cost £229 which was good value for a three day conference with plenty of choice. Find out more @fotb.
