One of the greatest assets of the Flash Platform is it’s large community of partners and developers who expand the capabilities of the platform with new and exciting features. Today is no exception as we announce the release of the ActionScript 3.0 Client Library for Facebook Platform API. This library, a joint effort between Adobe and Facebook, allows developers to create rich social web applications using Flash, Flex and AIR.
the best experience for developers building on both platforms.
Along with the development of the actual library, we have created a Facebook section on the Adobe Developer Center with articles, tutorials and videos which will help you get started developing your first Facebook application. We have also included links to examples of live projects built by customers who have begun combining these technologies in new and innovative ways. To download the library itself, track it’s ongoing development, or submit bugs and patches, visit the project page at Google Code.
While this announcement is a great milestone for Facebook and Flash developers, we hope to provide even more support going forward. We realize that social applications are a major focus for developers and we want to make sure and provide the best APIs and tools for you going forward. If you are in San Francisco at the Web 2.0 Expo this week, please come by the Adobe booth and visit with us. Facebook, along with a number of partners who are already building Flash based Facebook applications, will be here to talk about their experiences and show off their work. Or if you won’t be able to make it, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit my blog http://www.danieldura.com for more information as the project progresses.
