giving something back to the Flash community

The Swan Song

after seven years of fun, I renewed this domain name & hosting for the last time.

like many former Flash developers, I moved to JS. I didn’t want to mix things up (AS != JS) so I opened BARRADEAU.COM to gather my new stuff, along with a new blog called YOUPI! where I share my musings in graphic code.

as I’m not going to write ActionScript anytime soon, maintaining this site is therefore irrelevant.


now as it represents a fair bit of the time I spent learning how to code graphics, it’s a bit like ripping my heart out so I decided to make the thing available as public domain archives.


  • for a start, this whole blog frozen in time and space: HIDIHO!
  • which originated from my blog in french: TROP BIEN LE BLOG!



as opposed to a blog where I clean up things and (try to) give clear insights, most of the above are unsorted, broken, poorly named, unversioned & dirty. things (including code) may be written in french and instructions – when present – are kept minimal & cryptic always try a SHIFT or CTRL click, or hit SPACE… might help. it might also contain libs and samples gathered on the internet, probably from one of the blogs listed in the blogroll.

there are pretty good stuff too, long forgotten demos, early unfinished games, attempts and shit. ”libs” or tools that can be of interest. those are all yours for the taking.


so many shits were dumped here I can’t help but select the finest :

looking back, this blog is the story of me learning code, becoming better, more organized, more efficient.
it emphasizes one crucial fact that a friend of mine once put this way:

if what you do on a daily basis is shit
then your life is shit.

I’m glad to say I enjoyed every minute of what I did here.
thank you for having been around, for your comments, your support and your enthusiasm.

& remember,
the party goes on at YOUPI!

I’m rather new to giving talks and this year gave me a couple of occasions to practice.
here are most of the resources I’ve used & shown for the Processing & Haxe workshops.

And Now for Something Completely Different

after an eternity of discomfort and questioning, hours of discussion with friends and people I trust, my former students, occasional coworkers and potential clients, I took a decision:

this is was my last Flash project.

the project I work on is the sum of all my Flash know-how and should be a good one.
