FITC Amsterdam: SOLD OUT!
Today I’ve received a press release e-mail from FITC telling that this stunning event is already completely sold out. Too bad for those who are not attending if you ask me. (and if you don’t ask me I’m still saying it is too bad)
Toronto, Canada [February 11, 2008] — Two weeks in advance of its European debut, FITC has sold out its event in Amsterdam. FITC Amsterdam is scheduled for February 25 + February 26, 2008 at the Felix Meritis European Centre for Arts and Sciences. This is the first time that FITC, now in its seventh year, has ventured outside North America.
“Amsterdam has a reputation as a place for cool technology and hot design, which is one of the reasons why we chose it for our European debut,” says Shawn Pucknell, Founder of FITC and Executive Producer of FITC Amsterdam. “Now that the event has sold out well in advance, we’re confident in the choice we made.”
There was also a first official FITC Mobile Release. Very cool and I’m extremely excited about this. I’m working on it as we speak but it takes a while to get a decent performance and for those who are familiar with Flash Lite.. Yeah it is quite a struggle to get things running on a small device :) I’m testing the application on my Nokia n81 and just finished the navigation part. It should run more smoothly and I’m working on that now. In the device central I’m testing on the nokia n95 but I’ve noticed that this is not always the same as on an actual device.. Can be frustrating! :) I’m releasing a beta version soon so the application could be tested. Please notice that it is designed for ”smartphones” so your device should have a bit of soul and power to run the application smoothly! :)
As a bonus, attendees will be able to access the full FITC Amsterdam event schedule on mobile thanks to developer Thomas Joos (Belgium). The mobile application is being written with Adobe® Flash® Lite™ software, a powerful runtime engine for mobile and consumer electronics devices.
