Presentation

Overview

I hate to bring this up, but have you noticed that some people don’t like Flash very much at the moment?

So how on earth do we respond to that? Do we stick our heads in the sand, and assume it’ll all just work out?

In the Flash community we have a tendency to be insular, especially when our beloved technology gets such a bad rap in the press. But why is that? In order to find out what Flash looks like from the outside, I interviewed (on camera) 3 open web experts, Andy BuddJeremy Keith and Remy Sharp. If you’ve even got half an eye on the web community at large you may have heard of these people!

They were extremely honest and frank on their thoughts on Flash and its relevance in today’s web. Trust me, you need to hear what they’re saying.

But it wouldn’t be very balanced research unless I spoke to respected members of the Flash community. I also interviewed Jer ThorpBrendan Dawes and Branden Hall about the changes in Flash over the last few years, and how the emerging new tech has affected their work.

I’ll be broaching tricky subjects like ” “Apple vs Adobe”, and “Flash vs HTML5″, and “Why to people hate Flash?”.

So what have I discovered? Is Flash dead? Is Apple evil? Is Android the future of mobile devices? All will be revealed… and if it gets too heated, don’t worry, there will be kittens.
