Flex Camp Ottawa recap

The Flex Camp Ottawa event at Adobe last Thursday was an experience to remember: well-organized, great speakers and interesting information.

While I’m no Flex developer, I was interested to see those who are in the city.  Having the top two Flash firms (Fuel Industries & Teknision) in Ottawa as presenters tipped me over to check it out.

As a software developer, I looked into Flash/ActionScript programming many years ago and concluded that I would like to make web apps using other methods.

After this conference and seeing the calibre of programming from these designers, however, I’m more warmed-up to it.  As opposed to Flash, Flex seems to be more friendly to traditional programmers, comes with a pretty good SDK, and the sample apps developed by the presenters validates its maturity and usefulness.

Here’s a spanning view of the conference room where the camp was held:
