We sat down with Jon Campos, Michael Labriola, and Jesse Warden to get their take on the recent Adobe Flex Summit. Sorry for the late posting this week, we had some issues with a recent server upgrade, and we wish everyone some happy holidays
I know that our listeners have been used to getting another episode of Flex Show goodness released every other Wednesday at 9am EST. Today would normally be the release of a new episode. Due to some of the furor around Adobe and Flex; we've been trying to get timely episodes that are more timely instead our usual 4-8 week backlog.
As such, we don't have an episode ready to release today. I think this is the first time in three years we haven't had a bunch of episodes in our queue waiting to be edited and released.
There has been a lot going around in the Flex Community. There is a lot to take in, and a lot of change on the horizon. Despite some bad press, and some poor communication from Adobe; the news is not all bad. Flash is not dead, and today, I still believe Flex is the best choice for building many enterprise applications.
Adobe just finished up a semi-private meeting with some members of the Flex community at the Adobe offices. We weren't invited, but some of our friends were. We're hoping to get a few of them together for a brain dump of the event.
After that episode, we're hoping to get a handful of community members together for another roundtable, similar to our last one. These two episodes will bring us into 2011.
A few have asked me if we'd be abandoning the Flex community like so many others are claiming to do. It is our plan to continue as always right into 360|Flex in April 2012. I suspect this will be the last conference ever to focus on Adobe Flex; but hopefully 360|Conferences will bring us a 2013 conference focused on Apache Flex.
After 360|Flex, I plan to take a month off from podcasting, just like I did last year. Then John and I will re-evaluate what we're doing with the podcast and the best way to continue. Don't take the re-evaluation to mean anything bad, it's something we've done on a yearly basis since starting the podcast.
If you want to be on the show to talk about something, be sure to let us know.
Thanks for sticking with us!
