Following quickly on the heels of the Flex White Paper, you can now find on the ADC the Adobe Roadmap for the Flash Runtimes. The Flash white paper provides an overview of the Flash runtimes and a roadmap for their development. This will give you some insight into our current thinking and plans around Flash functionality in the Flash Player and AIR over the next one to two years.
Between these two white papers you should have a much clearer understanding of our current plans and intentions for Flex and Flash.
Be sure to come to a meeting of our Flex User Group Tour 2012 when it comes to a city near you. You can check some of the earlier posts outlining the European and North American tour dates.
Senior Technical Evangelist, Adobe
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.
