The Adobe Developer Connection is excited to announce that the brand new Adobe Cookbooks application is now live! This uber Adobe Cookbook application replaces the individual, product-specific cookbook applications that we previously had in place for Flex, AIR and Mobile. The new application will still support those technologies, in addition to a dozen or so additional technologies, all within a single application. For those new to the cookbook applications, they are a searchable repository for community-generated code samples.
You can read more about the new application in this Logged In article on the Adobe Developer Connection.
The new application has an updated design in addition to several new features:
- Many more products/technologies supported
- Improved navigation and search
- Recipe requests – for developers who can’t find the code sample they are looking for
- Related recipes – that appear in a side bar of all recipe pages
- Cookbook Explorer – a visual display of top cookbook recipes and contributors
- New contributor recognition features – profile pics, links to blogs, links to community profiles
Community participation is the backbone of the cookbook application, so whether you are coming to contribute, request or locate a recipe, or comment on and rate existing content, your participation in this community application is greatly appreciated. Contributors should be sure to have their Adobe.com community profiles filled out before publishing any recipes as that is where the application will pull in a lot of the author recognition features. To fill out your community profile, login here and click “View your profile.”
We will be updating the Adobe Cookbook after the initial launch with new features and new functionality. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas, so after you check out the new Cookbook, please feel free post your comments and suggestions in our Cookbook Feedback Forum.
Additionally, be sure to watch this blog going forward as this is where we will be announcing Cookbook contests and promotions from time to time.
Enjoy the new cookbook application!!
