FGS5 Slides and Presentation Available Online

Friday, April 5th, 2013

I know FGS5 has been behind us for a while now and I've been slow with any updates since. The summit was a blast as usual. It's so great to be among inspiring individuals and people who are passionate about making great Flash games. I especially enjoyed John Cooney's presentation, as well as the panel at the end of the day. If you weren't able to attend the event or watch the live stream, don't worry! All the presentation recordings are available from the FGS5 website! I have noticed some audio issues on a few that make them hard to hear, but overall its pretty good.

FGS 5 Schedule Announced

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

The program schedule for the upcoming Flash Gaming Summit 5 was posted recently. My session begins at 2:15 Pacific time, but the entire day looks like it will be filled with some great talks! I've had nothing but good things to say about this event after attending last year and highly recommend you go if you're able. It's a great place to learn about the industry, meet fellow developers and get inspired to create new projects.

Check out the schedule and then register for the event if you haven't already! I hope to see you there!

Speaking at FGS 5

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Last year I had a great time at the Flash Gaming Summit in San Francisco and I am pleased to announce that this year I'll be speaking at the event! FGS 5 will take place in San Francisco on March 24th this year and, if its anything like it was last year, it is definitely worth making the trip out! My talk will focus on the benefits of native extensions and creating a simple, C-based native extension to help attendees get started developing their own extensions. You can visit the FGS site to see all the presenters and check back often for updates and the official program list!

I hope to see you there!

FGS2012 and GDC: Flash and Xbox LIVE!

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Just in case you haven't been keeping up with the news; there was a pretty cool announcement from GDC for Flash and HTML5/Javascript developers. Microsoft revealed Xbox LIVE Web Games which means they're opening up the Xbox LIVE platform to web game developers. Microsoft will provide an API for making web service calls into the XBL platform. API's will be available for ActionScript 2, ActionScript 3 and also Javascript. (more…)

Flash Gaming Summit 2012

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Just a quick update here; I've been working tirelessly on a new Flash project that I'm hoping to wrap up in the next couple weeks. Working on this project has given me an idea for a great tutorial that I think some game developers will appreciate!

I also have started thinking about doing an overhaul on the blog and making it a more general development-type blog as I've been dipping my hands into a variety of technologies as of late. It would probably still be very heavily Flash-focused, but it never hurts to expand one's horizons. In addition to this, a new design couldn't hurt. I'm not sure when I'll get around to this though as I've got a lot of cool stuff going on at the moment!

One thing I'm looking forward to is the upcoming Flash Gaming Summit in San Francisco. The event is scheduled to take place on March 4, and while I've never been to one of these events before, it is looking likely that I will attend this year. If you're interested check out the summit site for all the details! Be sure to hunt around for discount promo codes before purchasing your ticket. They're all over the place!
