I’m both humbled and delighted to announce that I’ll be speaking at this year’s first ever FITC San Francisco event: FITC San Francisco 2010! The event runs from August 17th – 19th at the Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF. FITC has gathered over 70 internationally renowned presenters from around the globe for this epic three day Flash, Design & Technology event.

I attended FITC in Toronto in 2005 and 2006, where I saw some of the most inspiring presentations, met some amazing people, and generally had an incredible time. This year I’m particularly excited to see presentations from the likes of Robert Hodgin, Yugo Nakamura, Ben Fry, Erik Natzke, Mario Klingemann, and Theo Watson.

My presentation is titled “Harnessing the Abundance“. For those of you that have been following along here, I’ll be telling the story of and process involved in my Flow project. I hope to demonstrate that you don’t need to know all these different technologies in order to start using them — that in today’s world, a lot of the hard work has already been done. You just have to generate an idea and put the pieces together.

Along with the presentation, I’ll be posting all the source code that’s gone into this project in an effort to “give back” — because I couldn’t have done any of it without the numerous open source projects I’ve built upon.

I’m scheduled to speak on Wednesday, August 18th at 10AM — the first presentation of the day. My presentation is listed as being technical, but I hope that it also possesses a fair amount of creativity.

Early Bird pricing ends on July 2nd, so you should definitely hurry and grab your tickets if you haven’t already. Also, if you use the code “mikecreighton“, you’ll get 10% off your ticket price! GO GO GO GO!
