Today was the first day for the O'Reilly Open Source Software Convention 2003 (AKA OSCON). Arriving a bit late I managed to bump into Brian Aker before getting a bite to eat. Today was a short day for me but I did manage to attend the PHP and Flash tutorial by Laura Thomson and Luke Welling. Yes, they did talk a bit about MING (by Dave who happens to be a Portlander these days as I understand it but didn't manage to make it to OSCON). It was actually pretty interesting how you can pull dynamic data right into Flash using PHP. The bonus is that this is much more reliable (read: stable) than using Flash Remoting.
