Flex/Flash Evangelism Kit

Greetings! I’ve recently joined the Flex Product Marketing team after years working on ColdFusion, and before that was actually on the Flex 1.0 team when we still called it Royale. Something that we’ve heard from you guys is that you need help championing Flex and Flash Builder to your customers or even within your own organizations. I’m now working to put materials together that can help you in these endeavors. We’re looking to have things like proof points, presentation materials, and other assets that can help you evangelize Flex in whatever form may be best for you. I’m therefore looking for feedback on the kinds of things that you’d like to see. Some ideas that we’re considering are: a product roadmap, examples of ROI and business justification, competitive comparisons, customer success stories, architecture slides and whitepapers, etc. There is a lot of material we could provide, and we’ll likely not have it all ready at once, so this will be an ongoing process. But in the meantime, please send your ideas on what would be most helpful as we begin getting Flex 4 out the door.
Feel free to respond in comments or if you’d feel more comfortable sharing your feedback directly I can be reached at kwebb AT adobe DOT com.

Cheers,
Kristen

Update to Flex SDK 3.5

The Flex team has released an update to the 3.5 SDK that addresses an issue with the Flex-based AIR auto-update UI packaged within the SDK (SDK-24766). The refreshed build, SDK 3.5a, has only a few files modified in order to fix this issue and this change does not affect the signing and caching of the SDK 3.5 RSLs originally released in December.

We encourage all developers using SDK 3.5 to upgrade their build to SDK 3.5a to continue their development. The SDK 3.5a can be found in the “Latest Milestone Release Build” table here: http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+3.
