New Getting Started Panel on the ADC

Looking to learn how to use an Adobe product? Or to add another product to your collection of skills? There’s a new feature on the Adobe Developer Connection that can help you reach your goal.

Today, the ADC team added a new Getting Started panel to the ADC home page. This panel, located just above the Features panel, streamlines your path to beginner product tutorials and documentation in the developer product centers. It also points you to introductions to the top project types that people are designing and developing with Adobe technologies.

Check out the new panel, and let us know (in comments) if there are other resources or paths you’d like to see included. Enjoy!

Flex Cookbook – new book & updated site

O’Reilly Media has released the print version of Flex 3 Cookbook: Code-Recipes, Tips, and Tricks for RIA Developers this week! Get your copy from Amazon.

The authors, Josh Noble and Todd Anderson selected recipes from the live Adobe Flex cookbook site to add to the print copy. Thank you to all of our contributors for your contributions to the site. Keep sharing your recipes, feel the thrill of helping fellow developers and you could end up in a future version of the print cookbook!

As well, today, we released a re-skinned version of the Flex Cookbook site at With this release, we created a wider format Flex cookbook, improving the readability of code within cookbook recipes and in the composing recipe page. We hope you enjoy it!
