WSJ: Demand for Flash development increases
Interesting news from the Wall Street Journal:
Top full-time Flash engineers can now command more than $150,000 a year in salary, says Stuart Liroff, a headhunter at GreeneSearch recruiting firm. That compares with $50,000 to $80,000 a year three years ago, several entrepreneurs say.
With the advent of online social gaming start-ups such… demand for Flash engineers has suddenly surged.
I’m sure you’ll see this news on Mac fan sites, right about… now [commence breath-holding].
And yes yes, let me save people some typing: No doubt demand for HTML5 development is going up, too, and that’s good news for Adobe as we make great tools for HTML5 work & will make even more going forward. I just get tired of one-sized, zero-sum, non-pragmatic, and–it turns out–inaccurate triumphalism. [Via Jens Loeffler]
Want to talk Adobe + tablets at Photoshop World?
If you’ll be in Vegas next week and want to give me a piece of your mind, bounce ideas back and forth, etc., please let me know. I arrive Wednesday afternoon and fly out on Friday.
