Dom speaks With some of Adobe’s evangelists on the road, there is an opportunity for you Dear Reader to speak at FlashCamp!  Currently we have a Keynote on Saturday open, as well as afternoon sessions that day.

If you’d like to speak, or recommend someone, please comment below and we’ll get you set up.  Speakers need at least 30 minutes of content, and slides or a demo if preferred.

Update: Our Saturday Keynote speaker will be Justin Everett-Church, Senior Product Manager for Flash Player! He’s promised to tell us all about the new Drawing API and show off some cool demos made during development of Flash CS4.  Our Sunday speaker will be the prolific and ever-dynamic Lee Brimelow with some more demos and tales of Internet adventure.

Camp LogoLast year, Adobe held something called “ApolloCamp” here in San Francisco.  It was a popular event, based on BarCamp with a few lectures and some training thrown in.  I really liked the logo concept, and now I get a chance to pop it off as a moniker for our camp.

What do you think?

I’m open to ideas — the principle is to find something that will look good on a sticker, and bigger. I’d also like it to represent technical camps in general. Like, a sign: “Camp Here”.

Flash Player Adobe FlashCamp is a free event in the “unconference” style, focused on developers creating rich interactive experiences using the new Flash Player 10 features.

This event is inspired by BarCamp, iPhoneDevCamp, and the Hackathon, to develop inspiring content and applications using an advance copy of the Flash Professional CS4 authoring tool.

Attendees will include Flash and Flex developers, mobile developers, UI designers, and testers, all working together over the weekend. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts. While some attendees will wish to work solo during the event, we encourage attendees to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. All attendees should be prepared to work on a development project during the event.

Flash Authoring

Participants will be able to:

  • Learn about new Flash Player features
  • Create Flash Player 10 content and applications
  • Test and optimize content and applications for Flash Player 10

Of course, there will be a Contest, featuring some great prizes including — you guessed it — Adobe Creative Suite 4!  In addition to the prizes, winners of our Contest will be featured as part of our subsequent CS4 launch.

We are hoping to accommodate about 200 people at Adobe Town Hall in San Francisco.  See our Agenda before you register to attend.
