Flash and the City 2011
Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
- Workshop tickets get you access to the workshop on Thursday, June 09, 2011, however these tickets do not give you access for the conference.
- The conference tickets (New Amsterdam, Liberty, Manhattan, New York Minute) give you access to the conference from Friday, June 10, 2011 till Sunday, June 12, 2011. Now we also have daily conference tickets that give you access to a single day (SoHo, Chelsea, and Greenwich tickets).
Flash and the City 2011 is a four-day technology conference event that is taking place in New York City, encompassing a worldwide audience and group of speakers. The event includes a 3-day marathon conference focusing on a variety of technologies plus a one-day workshop that is held one day prior to the actual conference. The workshop will cover Flash, Flex, mobile, amongst other topics.
We are primed to redefine the way you think about conferences in the future. “Flash and the City” and “out of the box” are not marketing terms, but are descriptions of how the event is designed.
Our goal is to bring a very unique event to the community. It is an event that is community centric, creates networking opportunities for both attendees and sponsors, while allowing for the advancement of technology and community as one.
As part of the uniqueness of our event, part of our mission is to provide everyone the chance to experience New York City, and we plan to do that via our city track, which is designed to take participants to many of the world-famous locations and venues across the city while at the same time attending the conference.
The conference is to include 2 main tracks, which run at the same time, to allow attendees to pick and choose the type of experience they want to have. The tracks are divided into the following: technology and them of the day. There is also a city track takes place during time-off.
The technology track will cover all technology and development focused topics related but not limited to Flash, Flex, mobile, and general web/software development. The theme of the day track will cover topics by day as follows: UX/UI, Multiscreen/Mobile, and HTML5 respectively individually by day. The city track will be the sessions that take attendees to many of the world-famous New York City venues and locations, activities, and landmarks.
We believe that by combining top-learning sessions given by the best community-speakers with this unique concept of social events, we are giving all of the attendees a great chance to not only to learn and be inspired in an enjoyable and fun environment but also to socialize with the people they are following on Twitter and other social networks, whose blogs and books they are reading, and whose code from which they are learning.
In keeping with the community’s core values, FATC will continue to strive towards bringing a worldwide audience to this yearly event and expose them to new leaps in technology as well as allow for the networking of the shakers and movers of the event.
The event will not be entirely technology centric. Part FATC’s mission is to combine technology and design and along with that, to inspire its attendees. Therefore, FATC will not be single technology centric, but will focus on bringing and showcasing a realm of new and current technologies.
