I just attended FlashCamp Manila today at the Leong Hall of the Ateneo de Manila University from 9am to 5pm. It was a great conference. I learned a lot of new and exciting things regarding Adobe’s Flash Platform. Let’s see, what can I recall from the event?
I was able to catch part of John Imbong’s talk on the overview of the Flash Platform and how Flash is ubiquitous on the web and how it has achieved what Java had been intended for, to “Write Once Run Anywhere” a slogan which was to illustrate it’s cross-platform benefits.
There was so much I learned but I am finding it tiring to write it all down. I would probably have to be more persistent at being a writer to be able to become a successful professional blogger. Anyway to try to run through what I learned:
Flash 10.2 3D rendering and optimization
P2P, Multicast, Interpolation, CPU
Flash Catalyst 2.0 a whole lot better that 1.0. Has round-tripping between Illustrator/Photoshop – Flash Catalyst – Flash Builder. -> This is very cool. Still in beta, beta, beta. Available for download at Adobe Labs.
Flash Gaming is BIG, bigger than you think. How big? Very big. Zynga $5.5 Billion valuation. Second only to Activision-Blizzard.
Key2..something Flex Application development. Needs Flex Developers.
I almost forgot. Flash vs HTML5. Video Codec. H26
