Flash video n' related stuff
Our book is now available on Amazon, and will be “wherever books are sold” very soon! We worked really hard on this book, and tried to include everything you need to create Flash video applications in the real world. You’ll find all sorts of solutions to problems you’ll invariably encounter out there. Clients that may not know what they want. Video that’s blocky and choppy. Slow internet connections. Transitions, filters, thumbnail snapshots, streaming, progressive, videoconferencing… we cover it all. In both AS2 and AS3. It took a few years off our lives, but here it is!

Wow. Renee and I just returned from Minneapolis, where we were speaking at the Flashbelt conference. What an incredible event! A relatively small conference, with less than 500 attendees… and an all-star lineup of speakers. From Andre Michele to Josh Davis; from Jared Tarbell to Geoff Sterns. The feel of the conference was very open and friendly, with inspirational and informative dialog during and after sessions, and over drinks at the incredible after parties. The midwest knows how to do it up right.
We gave two sessions: Renee and I presented “Flash Video: The Basics and Beyond!” and I presented “Flash Video Crash Course.” As promised, here are the examples and resources from the talks [BEYOND talk to come]. Thanks to all that attended!

FYI — for those of you who don’t like spending $$$ on in-person conferences, or feel insecure if you’re too far away from your desk, here’s an online alternative.
