The internet is a goldmine of data. Almost every week, sites all over the web are offering new APIs that allow developers to retrieve their information in a convenient way. Other sites harbour interesting content but want to give it away only to humans, not to machines. But be it the easy or the hard way – data wants to be mined, processed, visualized or remixed and Flash® is the perfect tool for this job. Mario will show some of his experimental projects that mash up data coming from sources like Flickr, Amazon, YouTube, Lycos, or Yahoo. He will give an inside view into their making and offer hands-on solutions for typical Flash-related problems in this field.
Who this presentation is for:
If you saw some of Mario’s works and thought “How is this done?” you will get answers. The goal of this presentation is to inspire and to surprise – so there is something in for designers as well as developers. The amount of actual code that will be shown will be kept to an absolute minimum – the focus of this session is about concepts and ideas.
What attendees will walk away with:
Attendees will walk away thinking “So it is really that simple, huh? Why haven’t I thought about this before?” and “I should really spend more time with experimentation, actually I will start right this evening.”
