Visit from Simon Conlin

On Thursday, November 29th, our Interactive Multimedia class was privileged to have Simon Conlin visit our class.

Simon is originally from England and came to Canada a few years ago. Simons first passion was music and this developed into a love for Interactive Multimedia. Like the professors of IMM Sheridan, Simon is another pioneer in this ever growing field. Click here to go to Simons Site

Simon is an ambassor to Flash in a Can. Flash in a Can is A “Do It Yourself” festival for new media designers and developers who will learn the latest in interactive techniques and technologies and how to apply them to their own work. World-class speakers, Canadian debuts of new media art exhibits, a prestigious international awards show and late night mixers round out the festival, providing an energizing round-the-clock experience for the delegates.
