Below is a list (and some brief explanation) of links with interesting stuff found at Flash on the Beach this year.
Joa Ebert (from hobnox) talked about one of the geekiest subject known to man : Compiler optimization. Good to know some people care about thoseÂ things. This is how you can get cooler stuff on the screen. It have the potential to made our work run 10 times faster.
Some good optimization techniques from Grant skinner too: http://gskinner.com/talks/quick/

– Catalyst: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashcatalyst/ (Though I don’t believe in it too much…)
