So we're at the end of day #1 over at FOTB '08, and as expect it was full of amazing and enticing talks.
Here's a small overview of what I attended:
Keynote with Richard Galvan: We were shown the new functionalities on CS4, nothing really new but it was still nice to see them there live, then the presentation shifted focus to the mobile and cross platforms. So all and all nothing really new or that we weren't expecting. And oh we've learned about FOTBm (flash on the beach in Miami!!).
Dr Woohoo: This was a first time for me since I didn't make it last year, and boy was I impressed, did you know that you can hook up flex/flash to panels and control all the cs3/cs4 applications through it? Amazing!
Carlos Ulloa: As always Carlos delivers! This time he started us off by talking about methodologies and team workflow and then proceeded to show us off his latest project in the making, a 3d racing sim game in PV3d! And boy was I blown away!
Geoff Stearns: The developer for the Youtube Video Player, gave us a simple, yet tight, overview of the problems he encountered and how he overcame them, interesting session that validated my assumptions and decisions on a recent project i finished.
TInk: As always with Tink he's a great speaker with a very pragmatic approach to his stuff and he demo'ed a cool animation framework for Flex that looked very very sexy. Ps: Expect an interview over at daily with him .
And that was it off to the inspiring session!
