Where next for the Flash Platform? You tell us…

As part of last month’s Flash Camp, we worked with .net magazine (also known as Practical Web Design in the US) to bring five experts from the Flash community together to talk about what’s next for the Flash Platform.

.net have written up a great feature article from the roundtable, which is available in the May 2009 issue – they also published some video highlights from the discussion on their podcast, available here.

We’ve published the full (1 hour) video in case you’re interested in watching the complete, un-edited, no topics barred conversation, in which Mike Jones, Bola Rotibi, James Whittaker, Dave Williamson and Stefan Richter talk to me about their views on Adobe, the Flash Platform, the role of the community, competition with Microsoft and how they would like to see the Flash Platform develop in the future. By watching, you’ll also get to find out which of the five was a butcher before becoming a Flash developer 😉

Thanks to my colleague Serge Jespers for recording and editing the video! The May edition of .net magazine is in UK retailers now and I guess will be out in the US shortly.

    Real-time 3D with hardware acceleration.

    People have been asking for this for years.

    Breeze Meeting was actually built 100% in house, after the Presedia acquisition.

  5. Thanks for the correction Nigel – sorry I didn’t catch that during the discussion.

  6. Interesting Studio / Garage / Laundry room 🙂 No expense spared eh?

  7. Hi John,

    Unfortunately we don’t have the huge budgets that exist at Microsoft for such things 😉 Anyway, the “Studio/Garage/Laundry room” you refer to was actually a rather cool studio apartment that the community organiser of Flash Camp let us use… I thought it looked pretty nice.
