FITC San Francisco

I have to admit, I’m excited about FITC San Francisco on August 17-19. The conference has an amazing line up, including my personal Flash hero, Yugo Nakamura. It’s also in an awesome location. SF is the heart of the Flash world, and there’s lots of cool innovation happening in the interactive space. I’m looking forward to hanging out with friends in the area, and catching up with clients.

I’ll also be debuting a brand new talk, titled “ADHD FTW, LOL!!”. It’s a (hopefully) fun talk about the random experiments, applications, and libraries I build while I’m procrastinating or bored. It’s basically about how to turn your distractibility into a strength. I’ll be showing work from roughly the last year, including some stuff I’ve never really shared before. After a couple of years of technical sessions on topics like code optimization, development process, and code standards, it’ll be kind of nice to present an inspirational talk!

If you’re thinking of going, and haven’t bought tickets yet, you can get a 10% discount using the code “gskinner” on the FITC website. Hope to see you there!
