After a very successful run of my Flash 8 Bootcamp in Los Angeles (we oversold the event due to some very tenacious would-be attendees, and wound up having to reconfigure the venue to fit everyone), I have decided to bring the workshop to London in cooperation with FitC and the London MMUG. Every run gets a little bit more polished and fun to deliver, so I have high hopes for this next iteration.
One of the most popular aspects of the workshop so far has been the demo files that are included with it. Attendees receive the full source for over 30 pre-built demo files, which cover all of the major features (and most of the minor ones) in Flash 8. This includes source for the popular HumanTorch, SnowStorm and MagnifyingGlass experiments. I also provide the source code for another 15-20 mini-demos I build during the workshop.
In LA, I had a lot of fun at an evening event arranged by R Blank (LAFlash manager, and all round good guy) where attendees could go out for bowling, beer and a bite to eat with me. I’m planning on arranging something similar for the first night of the workshop in London – it was a great chance to meet and chat with attendees informally whilst whupping them in a (mildly) competitive sport. I love LA Flashers, but they apparently stink at bowling *grin* (Josh Davis will back me up here).
Anyway, if you’re interested in the workshop, you can find more info in my past posts, or on the official site. These workshops do sell out (as proven in LA), so you’re encouraged to register early if you want to guarantee a seat.
Also, if you’re a London MMUG member, you might want to chat with Tink (Stephen Downs) – he might have some other info that you’ll want before you sign up. If you’re not a member, why not? It’s free.
