There’s an FMS usergroup meeting tomorrow covering the basics and an introduction to P2P with Flash and Flash Media Server. Should be interesting. If you’ve been keen to get an intro into P2P then this would be the meeting to attend virtually.
Date: Tuesday, August 23
Time: noon EST, 11:00am Central, 9:00am Pacific
During this session you will learn about the ways to leverage P2P in your Flash Platform applications. You will see some demonstrations on how to share video, audio, and data among application peers in a way that can lower server requirements and save on infrastructure costs. By the end of the session you will have the knowledge to get started building your own P2P Flash Platform applications using multicast, posting, object replication, and directed routing. In addition, you will have a good clue on how to build your applications in a way that leverages FMS without breaking the bank on server costs.
