I'll be speaking at Flash in the Can 2007

Flash in the can It's confirmed! I get to speak at flash in the can 2007. This is great news for me, as I wanted to speak at tech conferences for a while now.. but finally I got in.

Flash in the can is a flash conference held in toronto for a few years now and it is one of the most important conferences in North America. It is actually the first tech conference I attended.

Irony is that I'm not that much into flash.. Much of my work is related to opensource and standards-based development, but in this area you can have a religion about technology, but in practice you have to set that aside for realism and pick the right tool for the job.

Currently flash is simply the number one way to bring video content to the browser in both user adoption and usability. I kind of rolled into the video thing by accident, because one of my earlier clients requested a user generated video application.. That ball kind of kept on rolling and developing video-enabled web applications has been my main role ever since.

The title of my presentation is Flash Video Lifecycle: From User To Delivery. I will be covering uploading using flash, handling uploads using php, converting with FFMpeg and delivering video using Flash.

I'm very excited, and hopefully I will be able to jumpstart and inspire the people who are into this sort of thing, but don't know where to start. If your there, be sure to say hi!
