Announcing HaxeHybrid LAX 2022

11 Jul 2022 By thomas

Among the many things I missed during the years of the Covid19 pandemic was in-person gatherings of other computer people - from programmers to artists and qa technicians, from scrum managers to devops and security. As tiring as travel can be, meeting people behind blog posts and even tools that I use stimulates constructive conversations that might not have happened otherwise. But I’m also a big proponent of doing things remotely and I also discovered during the pandemic years that a well-designed online event can have all the same advantages of an in-person event. In that spirit, I’m putting on a small event for the Haxe programming language first day of next month. And it will be “hybrid” with remote and in-person attendees alike being first class attendees.

Haxe is an awesome programming language that often functions as our secret weapon. It’s important to note that, like any other tool, it’s not magic but it is awesome. I have blogged about haxe in the past and will continue to do so in the future. It has allowed me to create common codebases that I can use in different environments. It has allowed me to abstract over multiple frameworks across different programming languages, saving me ample work in creating powerful tools. The language isn’t even designed with the idea of multiple targets being its main gimmick. It’s a powerful language used for making games and web applications, but it’s capable of even more than that.

Haxe hasn’t had a major in-person event since the start of the pandemic though it has had some smaller online events to tide us over. If you’re at all interested in Haxe, consider attending HaxeHybrid LAX 2022! I hope to see you there.
