I spoke at the last 360|Flex in San Jose, but I’m already more excited for the DC conference, and here’s why.
- I’m speaking about the most exciting part of the Flash Platform, AIR2
- Jesse vs. Jesse ( Flash vs Flex throwdown )
- It’s in Washington DC
- My band The Compilers will be giving a lunch talk, as well as playing live at one of the parties
- There is talk of Duanne Nickull’s band 22nd Century playing ( hopefully Sean ‘the flex guy’ too )
- Doug McCune is giving the opening Keynote speech on Monday
- I get to hang out with the Flex community
If you haven’t been to a 360 Flex conference yet I highly recommend it. If you still need help deciding, here are a few conference questions for you.
- Do you currently work with or have any interest in Adobe Flex?
- Have you attended a 360 Flex conference yet?
- Do you want to meet the community loudmouths you’re already following on Twitter?
- Have you seen who is speaking at 360 Flex DC?
- Have you ever heard The Compilers play live?
- Are you still reading this blog post?
The last 360 Flex I spoke at was in San Jose and it rocked. The city of San Jose bored me to tears, but I felt like I was living inside my twitter feed for three days. My presentation was on the final day of 360 Flex, so I spent most of the conference preparing, and sitting in a few sessions here and there. I spent almost half of my time in San Jose working and still met 10-15 of my twitter buddies, not to mention all the new contacts I met. In a nutshell, if you attend a 360 Flex conference, you will meet the community. In fact, you’d have to try pretty hard to not meet the Flex community.
If this sounds up your alley, go ahead and register to take advantage of the early adopter ticket price of $450. I’m not sure when the ticket price will go up to $599, but I know it will so act fast. If you make it to DC, be sure to find me and introduce yourself. I promise it will be a good time.
