I’ll be speaking at a couple confirences in the next six months on the topic of Flash Development on Facebook. The first conference I’ll be at is MN.swf Camp on April 5th. This will be a short 30 minute session that will introduce the concepts around developing a Facebook application and specifically putting Flash Applications within Facebook.com.
Then I’ll be giving a much more in-depth session at Flashbelt in June. This session will actually dig into some of the details and caveats of Facebook development. Patterson Consulting has been doing a lot of Facebook integration with our clients lately and we see this as an emerging market Flash developers.
I gave a presentation at MN.swf Camp on Peer-to-Peer communication in Flash Player 10. That presentation is now up on my presentations page. The Library that I created to simplfy the P2P commcunication is also posted on my labs page.
I also created two sample applications. The first is a Video Chat application that runs in the browser and the second is an Collaborative Shopping application that runs in AIR. The shopping application was created by Jason Grey, I just added the collaborative functionality.
Yes, we’re going to do it again! MN.swf Camp was such a huge success in 2008 that we’ve decided to make it an annual event. It will be held at the Library again this year on Monday, April 6, 2009.
We’re currently looking for people interested in speaking. If this is you, please go to the MN.swf Camp web site and fill out our speaker form. You don’t need to submit your session topics yet. We’ll be holding an orientation meeting for all interested speakers. After that meeting you will have a couple weeks to submit your final topic ideas and selections will be made.
MN.swf Camp sold out in less than three days. We had to limit the attendees to 100 because of space limitations, however, we are currently exploring other venue options. If we can secure a larger venue then we will reopen registration. I suggest you sign up for the mailing list on the conference home page so you can be alerted if registration opens again.
MN.swf Camp is a one day conference in Minneapolis focusing on the Flash Platform for programmers. Its being organized by the MN.swf User Group and FlashBelt.
