Flash Gaming Summit

Posted on Feb 03 2010

I'm trying every year to speak at least at one international conference. Attending to a conference is a good way to keep me updated with what's happening in the real outside world, and I also like to talk about my work while I'm there ;)

I don't have much free time, I dislike airports, and I'm married : three good reasons why I'm also limiting a bit my involvement within the "conference loop" compared to some of my good Flash friends which are doing something like five (or more) conferences a year.

Since I like to meet new people and learn new things, I think it's best to go as much as possible to different conferences. This year I will be very happy to speak about Haxe at the Flash Gaming Summit conference which takes place in San Francisco next month !

This is a bit a side-event of the bigger Game Developer Conference 2010 so I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun there, and meet people that want to hear more about how to develop Flash games with Haxe.

EDIT : I decided to the stay the whole week in SF and attend the GDC at the same time, so if I know you and if you are around, drop me an email so we can meet.

See you (maybe) there !

    Hi Nicolas,
    will follow your blog in order to keep apprise about developing flash games with haxe, 'cause for some people like me :p, it's difficult to go to San Francisco. However I wish to succeed to meet you at a conference (one day). Do you usually make some conferences in France?

    hI NICOLAS.
    Haxe is great and it would be good if more people where using it.
    That way more documentation could be created for it and would make the language easier to learn.

    Once thing you should probably flag when you attend your conference is why is Have suitable for game development, and why is it better to use Haxe as oppose to the commercial Flash CS4 or CS3 or whatever.

    Having say that Polygonal is the only Library develop for Haxe, there is not one single example provided with the source.

    Which make Haxe not an easy platform to develop Game.
    or is there any other library?

    I really admire your work and wish long life to HAxe and his comunity.
