Flash is Dead! Long Live Flash!

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Some love it, some hate it. Few technologies have had a more visceral response from developers and users alike than the Flash platform. From the Silverlight saga to the public slugfest between Apple and Adobe, each point of contention has left detractors saying that "this" will be the time that Flash dies. Will it ever stop crashing our browsers? Will it ever stop being a CPU hog? Can HTML5 finally kill Flash once and for all? Join us as we clear the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) around these and other points of contention that have driven so many heated forum rants and paginated comment threads.
