Understanding the Viability of the Browser Plugin in a Changing World | Client-Side Software Development

With the recent announcement from Adobe that Flash Player for Mobile Web Browsers would not be further developed, there has been quite a bit of concern among Flash and Flex Developers about the viability of the Flash platform moving forward. Companies who have millions invested in Flex Applications are now worried that Adobe may not support Desktop Flash moving forward; leaving these companies with products they won’t be able to distribute to their customers.

Porting an AIR Application to HTML « Christian Cantrell

Porting an AIR Application to HTML « Christian Cantrell | Everything about Flash | Scoop.it

I recently wrote a simple compass application in AIR to demonstrate the use of ANEs (AIR Native Extensions) for accessing sensor data that we don’t have API support for yet. When I heard that iOS 5 brought orientation APIs to mobile Safari, I decided to port the application from AIR to HTML in order to see what the development experience would be like.

Farata Systems » The Rumors of Flash Player’s Death are Greatly Exaggerated

This morning ZD Net published an article stating the Adobe will cease development of Flash Player on Mobile in favor of packaging mobile applications in Adobe AIR.
The Flash Player haters quickly picked up this news and to draw attention to their blogs/tabloids started to cash on Steve Job’s name stating that he won the battle with Adobe since Steve was the one who didn’t let Flash Player on iOS.

Flash Professional and the Future at Mike Chambers | Everything about Flash | Scoop.it

Yesterday was probably one of the most overwhelming days of my entire career. First, Adobe informed developers that we are going to stop developing the Flash Player for mobile browsers, then news came out that there were layoffs at Adobe, and finally, Adobe held a financial analyst meeting where we spelled out the Creative Cloud, and the fundamental strategic shift Adobe is making.

Flash, mobile, and all the hype

Flash, mobile, and all the hype | Everything about Flash | Scoop.it

// Yeah, I know I'm supposed to only curate here. I've been curating a few posts about Adobe forsaking flash player on mobile. Sounds like every one gave its two cents already. And you're all skilled enough to hit google and read the rest.

Me, I'm tired. I've been a flash dev for 10 years, and every couple years, Flash is dying AGAIN. I wish Adobe (and previously, Macromedia) would just stop giving fodder to the flash haters all the time.  You've been laying 750 people off, I do hope they 're from the PR department.

Seriously, announcing such an event with a leak to ZDNet... how stupid can PR be?

 

I wish all the good things emerging from the openscreen project could still be the freshest things to learn about flash. Bugger, it's not. 

 

I won't stop being a Flash dev, flash would have to really die for that. But I'll stop waring on blogs and twitter for Adobe. They can sort their own shit now (not that I did matter anyway :p). And let's hope the flash player (whichever platform it runs on) will soon be opensourced. 

 

That's all folks, thanks for reading :) //

It’s a Starling Halloween

It’s a Starling Halloween | Everything about Flash | Scoop.it

So after making my Starling Particle Editor, I thought I’d take the time to actually build a little something in the framework. And what better thing than a Zombie Shooting Gallery made with the help of my wonderful wife. It’s a 3 meg download with a boring preloader, but it’s fairly well worth the wait. To play, just shoot as many zombies as you can in the allotted 15 seconds. Make sure to use the spacebar to cock the shotgun before each shot. And in case you’ve never seen a zombie movie in your life, be sure to shoot the bastards in the head. It’s funner with the sound turned up as well.
