Just some quick props to Ryan Christensen for a good post, including a robust set of links, on the topic of AS3 optimization and improvements in the F10 player.  Can’t have too much information on this topic 🙂

Actionscript Optimization

March 27, 2009 1 comment

Of the dozens of request-for-help emails I get every week, one of the most common topics is general suggestions for actionscript optimization.  There are numerous online resources for this topic, one of which is the ActionscriptWiki page.  John Grden also has a nice post on this topic.

I’m a big fan of Polygonal Labs, and Michael has numerous posts such as this one that deal with fast approximation algorithms.  This is another good one from his Actionscript category (well worth your time).

I believe I’ve mentioned Joa Ebert’s paper before in this blog, but it’s worth repeating.  Post your favorite techniques and resource sites.

Gurobi Optimization

October 25, 2008 2 comments

Good friend and former colleague Ed Rothberg has started a new venture.  Gurobi Optimization is scheduled to release their suite of optimization products in March 2009.  With Ed and Bob Bixby behind the product suite, it’s sure to be groundbreaking.

Ed is one of those rare people who is both personable and can take anyone you think is bright and seriously blow them away.  You’ve probably seen some of those interviews where a Flash celebrity is asked who they look to for inspiration.  Whenever I think of that question, Ed’s name pops into my head.

I’m glad to have known and worked with Ed and wish him the best of luck at Gurobi.
