Tyler Wright to speak at FlashForward

If you haven’t guessed, I’m Tyler Wright. I started out in life hoping to be an artist and even went to school with a declared major of Illustration. Somehow I’ve become a full-time web developer programming the applications that get designed by someone else (currently the mediaRAIN designers). My niche: Flash ActionScript

FlashForward Conference

I am scheduled to speak at the FlashForward Conference for the first time this September. I am co-presenting with the amazing developer and good friend, Rob Taylor. The title of the session is Browser Power for Flash. This FlashForward presentation is about drawing on the strengths of the browser to make the Flash experience a better one. We’ll show stuff like embedding JavaScript in Flash, Flash SEO (search engine optimization), dynamically embedding Flash in the web page, etc. Examples used will be navigation and bookmarking within a non-pagenated Flash site, disabling and re-tooling the Flash right-click menu, using custom fonts in your HTML and many others. More on this as the presentation develops.

You’ll find the name at the bottom of the list of speakers: Tyler Wright (I’m a little behind the rest of the world, alphabetically). I hope to meet you at the conference for those of you planning to attend!

    That’s awesome you are a speaker at such a cool conference! Maybe I can get Provo Labs to send me to there. I’d love to see the presentation.

    I think we’ll be presenting locally to prepare for the conference as well … I’ll keep you posted on both.

    Good to hear from you Jimmy

    Hey Tyler! I enjoyed your session at FlashForward, although, I was hoping to speak to you afterwards (I was pulled away…) So I was hoping I could ask you a few humble questions about dynamic data and your methods if you have the time. Oh… and I want to know if the source for your session is floating around anywhere.

    Anyway, shoot me an email if you have a chance.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the session Spencer. I feel it could have been pulled off a little more smoothly – because we spent too much time coding we didn’t spend sufficient time on the cool stuff at the end – but overall it was a great experience.

    The resources are currently on Rob Taylors website at http flashextensions.com/lecture.php under Browser Power for Flash

    I will have the resources at this location as well, coming soon with a site redesign (reorganization).
