SEATTLE, Feb. 5, 2018 -- FlowPlay, creator of the most powerful immersive gaming platform, today announced the company will host the inaugural U.S. Haxe Summit in partnership with the Haxe Foundation. The three-day event will take place in Seattle May 3-5, and offers developers a deep dive into Haxe, an open source, cross-platform toolkit that provides access to all mainstream platforms natively. The technology is growing in adoption worldwide and is currently used by thousands of developers across several industries. This conference provides the first official opportunity for Haxe developers to network with other industry professionals in the U.S., and will cater to all audience levels with beginner, intermediate and advanced sessions.
Through a combination of sessions, workshops and panel discussions, attendees will hear how to build games, applications and frameworks across several industries including gaming and entertainment. The lineup of speakers and industry experts will give attendees a sneak peek into new and interesting Haxe projects, deliver hands-on learning experiences and provide introductory sessions to those new to the technology.

"We are looking forward to promoting the power of Haxe in the United States for the first time, among new and existing connections.
