The Sencha stuff is certainly worth looking in to, considering previous Flex/Flash evangelists are on the Sencha team now. Of course, that's a larger framework that comes with certain expectations as opposed to understanding the underlying technology and learning needed to excel in that field.
Remix South, founded and organized by one of my colleagues may be of interest as well. I'm not sure where you are located, Jason, but it might be of some value to connect with those that are converting from the Flash to web space. This conference, specifically, is growing rapidly and many of those attending came from the 'interactive designer' or 'interactive developer' space and are broadening their interests. http://remixsouth.com/ BTW, I miss this list. I spent many years on flashcoders and flexcoders and have moved on. Sort of amazing to see that, one in a great while, there is still some activity here! cheers, jon bradley cynergy. | Director, Research & Development O: 585.563.2132 M: 585.729.0837 @: jon.brad...@cynergy.com On Jan 24, 2013, at 1:58 PM, Dave Watts wrote: >> Our key learning event for 2013 will be O'Reilly's Fluent Conference in San >> Francisco in May > > I'd second Fluent, based on feedback I got about the last one.
