Announcing the Flash Platform Game Technology Center

We’re very happy today to announce the launch of the Flash Platform Game Technology Center on the Adobe Developer Connection web site!
If you’ve developed using any of Adobe’s products, you’ve probably visited the ADC web site before. It’s a great resource, full of articles, tutorials and code samples – most of which have been contributed by you, the developer community. While there have been articles posted that relate to game development, it was never one of the themes of the site.
With the launch of the Flash Platform Game Technology Center, we’re putting together a place to collect all the great resources for Flash game developers, both on the ADC web site as well as links to community sites around the Internet.
Some of the new content available:

There’s lots more content we have planned for down the road. We hope this section of the ADC web site grows into a valuable resource for the game development community. If you’ve got an idea for an article you’d like to contribute, please take a look at the ADC Author Guidelines page for more information.
