I am so excited that this is finally happening. United Digital Artists, one of the two companies that have put on all of the past FlashForward conferences is launching a new Flash conference in Europe. I have been working with UDA behind the scenes to help make this happen, and it is shaping up to be a killer conference.
First, here are the details.
November 16 – 18 in Amsterdam (at the really cool Paradiso)There is a partial list of confirmed speakers on the conference website, and looking at the list, it is clear that this is truly a European conference:MATHIEU ANTHOINE/Yamago (France)ARAL BALKAN/Ariaware (UK)MIKE CHAMBERS/ Macromedia (US)HOSS GIFFORD, FlamJam (UK)CHAFIC KAZOUN/B-Line Express (US)JOOST KORNGOLD, Renascent (Netherlands)KEVIN LYNCH/Macromedia (US);GRANT SKINNER/ gskinner.com (Canada)CRAIG SWANN/ CRASH!Media (Spain)OWEN VAN DIJK/Mutoid (Netherlands)GUY WATSON/Flashguru (UK).SASCHA WOLTER/Flashforum (GERMANY)DANNY DURA, Macromedia (US)The timing for the conference could not be better, since it is just after the Flash 8 launch, and right after MAX (which means there will be some very cool stuff to show / talk about).Anyways, I’ll be there, and I think this is a must attend conference if you are in Europe. I know the UDA people want to make this a regular conference, so hopefully this is the start of a regular event in Europe.I expect that this will sell out quickly, so make sure to register as soon as possible.You can visit the conference website here.You can register for the conference here.
