For the first time I will attend this year’s Flashforum Conference (FFK08) in the MediaPark Cologne. It is already the eighth edition of the two day conference, organised by Marc Thiele and Sascha Wolter. They are the creators of the Flashforum, the biggest German-speaking Adobe User Group.
The presentations accompanied by several workshops cover both creative and technical topics all around Flash, Flex and Adobe AIR. As a general tendency more and more technical topics determine the conference. Creative topics play a throughout minor role.
This tendency reflects the current streams within the community and the platform in general quite good. Affected by Flex and AIR the Flash platform evolved from a web designer environment into to a serious platform for web and desktop applications. So I am really looking forward to all the presentations.
