Ribbit Killer App Winners Announced

I participated in the judging of the entries for the Ribbit Killer App Challenge over the last few months, and it was really great to see so many folks building cool applications. I think the contest also brought a number of people to Flex for the first time, which of course was especially gratifying 🙂

The winners have now been announced! Congrats to everyone!

Coding for Nabaztag?

Our QA manager recently added a Nabaztag to her cube at work, which means all of us are sending it nasty sound files and messages to keep us entertained. We know that there are ActionScript APIs already available for the Nabaztag API and even some apps already built. But if someone were to build a super-cool Flex example that leveraged the Nabaztag (that we can then use in-house), I’m sure we could come up with some worthy gift for you 🙂

To help out, we asked the guys at Violet to add a crossdomain.xml file to the api domain, and last night they did. So no more proxies needed!

Have fun!

And I’ve embedded it below for your convenience.
