Don’t Miss ‘Flash Jeopardy’ at MAX 2011

We’re two weeks away from MAX 2011 and we’re excited to share that we’ll be hosting Flash Jeopardy this year. This is a follow on to last year’s popular MAX game, Are You Smarter Than a Flash Platform Evangelist?, where we pitted Flash community members against our evangelists.

Flash Jeopardy will be based on (you guessed it) Jeopardy and hosted by our own Ben Forta! Unlike last year, this is all about our developers and how much they know about Flash. We’re challenging four contestants to flex their Flash knowledge in a Jeopardy! style Q&A format, and who better to help us stump them than you!

We’re looking for any Flash-related questions and answers be it about tools/framework (i.e., Flash Builder, Flex, Flash Professional, etc.), runtimes (i.e., Flash Player and AIR) and/or what you can do with Flash for mobile development, gaming, etc. We welcome any and all questions – easy to hard! Submit your questions to fprocks@adobe.com with “Flash Jeopardy” in the subject line, and it could be featured in the game!

For those attending MAX in LA, be sure to save the date for the game show. Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 4 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Community Pavilion at the Flash Rocks Entertainment Lounge for the Flash developer showdown! Hope to see you there.

 

Seriously – ARE You Smarter than a Flash Evangelist?

As you may have read in a blog post last week from Ben Forta on the MAX blog, on Day 2 of this year’s MAX, on the community pavilion stage, we’ll be hosting a game show that pits 4 experts from the greater Flash community against 4 Adobe Flash evangelists. We’re calling the game “Are You Smarter than a Flash Evangelist?” and right now we’re taking your questions (and answers) to make this a quality, “infotaining” event. Got a Q/A that will flummox our contestants? Send it to us: fye@adobe.com. Can be multiple choice, single answer, techy or not so techy. The more the better.

SO WHEN IS THE GAME?
Tues Oct 26 at 4.30pm PT – MAX Pavilion stage, LACC

WHO IS PLAYING?
The Adobe team: Lee Brimelow, Ryan Stewart, Michael Chaize and Serge Jespers
The Community team: Stacey Mulcahy, Chuck Freedman, Elad Elrom and Jesse Freeman – aka The Flash Bum

WHAT’S THE ACTUAL GAME?
