On May 13-17 there’s an incredibly great event called Flash And The City in New York city. This event is very much unlike other events because it isn’t just all about speaker sessions.
There is a special "city track" which allows you to take in the scenery as there are also some city tours organised for the attendees. It provides a more relaxed scene for networking with over 40 top speakers from all around the world. If you don’t want to miss any of them, there’s even a 3-hour cruise with dinner on Saturday evening. And the great thing is that it’s included in your ticket. Just take a look at the entire schedule to see the amazing speaker list and decide who you would like to see in action.
May 13 is a pre-conference day that is packed with workshops about Mobile and Devices, Beginning ActionScript, Flex 4 and AIR 2.0. That last one is definitely worth checking out, because with the latest release of AIR you can really do some amazing things. I will also be part of this AIR 2.0 workshop as I will take you on a tour of using the encrypted local SQLite database and shows you how to use the new ColdFusion 9 Hibernate/ORM feature to access your local database without having to write a single line of SQL code. This is really going to blow your mind!
So don’t just sit there and get your tickets right now, because this will be an epic event!
