Flex (Flash) Camp Wall Street 2009 on November 16-17 in NYC

The second edition of the hugely successful Flex (Flash) Camp Wall Street is less than 2 weeks away. This time the event is bigger (over 2 days — November 16-17, 2009), better (more speakers and more topics) and cheaper ($49 only!). Alike last year, its at the conveniently located New York Seminar and Conference Center — 71 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10010.

There are a bunch of very talented  Flex, AIR, Flash, LCDS and BlazeDS experts (experienced developers, celebrated authors, speakers and ideators) speaking at the event. As it stands, the speaker list includes James Ward, Yakov Fain, Jeff Tapper, Jeffry Houser, Wade Arnold, Christian Saylor, Brian O’Connor, Daniel Holth, Elad Elrom and Adam Flater, besides yours truly :)

You can lookup the details about the event and register online at http://www.flexcampwallstreet.com

Information on the schedule and sessions is available at http://www.flexcampwallstreet.com/sessions.html. You can read more about the speakers at http://flexcampwallstreet.com/speakers.html.

An idea of a party at the end of day 2 is actively brewing as well!

If you are interested, please go and register right away. The tickets are selling out fast and going by last year’s experience its highly likely that they will all be sold out soon!

I am a technology entrepreneur, innovator, author and, as some say, a “thought leader”. I like to solve challenging computing problems, especially those that drive innovation. Being a polyglot programmer, I can program fluently in many languages, including Java, Python, C++, C, Ruby, ActionScript, JavaScript, Objective-C, Haskell, Scala, Clojure, PHP, Groovy, Lisp and Perl. I must admit that I like to learn programming languages and if there is a new interesting one coming, I wouldn’t be far behind getting to grips with it. Over the last many years I have built some cutting edge enterprise and consumer software applications, many of which have leveraged large data sets and the web based programming paradigms. This means I also know a lot about data bases and persistence. I am very conversant with relational databases, embedded databases, object databases, text based data and XML. Having leveraged web based programming paradigms, I have first hand experience with a lot of web development frameworks, including but not limited to Adobe Flex, Spring MVC, Rails, Grails and Django. Not to forget, I obviously have worked a lot with HTML, JS and CSS. My experience and interest are varied and diverse and range a wide spectrum of application development realms that include the server, the client and the middleware. Besides, programming, I am also deeply interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. This motivates me to bring my knowledge of applied mathematics, statistical modeling, artificial intelligence and sometimes simply data structures, to good use, when I build applications. A couple of domains like financial mathematics and scientific computing seem to have been good fit for such expertise. I am an ardent supporter of open source software and try and contribute to open source code bases and causes. I like the plurality and variety that software development offers; the choice of programming languages, the abundant availability of tools and libraries, the existence of multiple operating systems and the possibility of varied software development methodologies. As a member of the technology community, I am an active contributor to the ever evolving software development languages, methodologies and standards. I am an expert group member on a number of JCP (Java Community Process) specifications, for example JSRs 274, 283, 299, 301 & 312, and have been recognized as an Adobe Flex Champion.I run and organize a few community events like Flex Camp Wall Street, Show Ramp and Polyglot World. I bring together all my expertise in terms of services and products via my primary venture, Treasury of Ideas LLC, in which I play the role of a Managing Partner. Treasury of Ideas LLC, through its focus on innovation and value optimization, offers many best of the breed services and products and has incubated many ideas to help translate them to reality. Our clients range from large enterprises, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations to promising new startups. I write regularly in many technical journals and magazines, present in seminars and mentor developers and architects. I have authored a few books, including Advanced Flex 3 (friends of Ed/APress, 2008) and Professional BlazeDS (Wrox/Wiley, 2009) , and am in the process of authoring a few more. You can learn all about my books and public talks by browsing through the Publish & Present page at www.shanky.org.
