I was in Cologne this week at FFK09, and it was a very nice conference ! The weather was not so good the first days, but every other thing was perfect. Being more into wine, I actually didn't know that I could drink that much beer !
As for the presentation, I wished I could at least understand some German, but I was able to follow some of them, since technical words are often in English. Thanks a lot to Marc and Jens for doing some translations for me during my stay ;)
I did two presentations at FFK09. The first one was part of the 10-hots-minutes : five speakers with ten minutes each to show something about their work. Being together with André Michelle and Mario Klingemann I felt like some pressure, so I put together some Physaxe examples but also try to show how you can use particles + a physics engine to build some nice effects such as exploding volcanoes or more fluid-like systems.
But my main one-hour presentation What is SWF ? was about the SWF format, the information it contains and the way you can use this knowledge to improve your code or graphics. You can download the slides of the presentation if you want to have a look.
Everything went very well and I got pretty good feedback so far about it.
PS : I would like to thank in particular Marc Thiele and Sascha Wolter for inviting me at FFK09 and of course organizing the whole thing !
