Rounding Up An Activity-filled Week

Posted by Sravan | April 27, 2009 .

If you feel guilty of surfing the Internet for things not directly related to your work while in office brush it away and plan to strike a balance. Adobe XD has links which support that you are doing the right thing.

Intuity and Xtify together are conducting a contest for a location-based RIA. Huge prizes but only open to residents of the USA and Canada. The Dr. Dobb’s Challenge appears to be open for everybody, has great prizes too, and can be great fun.

I have used some of the neat features in TweetDeck’s latest version but had no idea that the Adobe AIR team has been helping with TweetDeck’s development. Thumbs up!

The JavaFXpert opined that Oracle’s acquisition of Sun is irrelevant to the future of JavaFX and that if at all, Oracle will take full advantage and give it a good boost. I hope so.

James Whittaker reviewed Polaris, an AIR app that uses the Google Analytics API, which has been very recently released. Apparently, the previous app by the same developer was possible only through reverse engineering of the Google Analytics javascript.

Scott Barnes goes at great length to set the record straight about whether Microsoft copy the Adobe AIR poster while the Silverlight team is getting busy to help developers get started, starting with what Silverlight is.

The PC World featured a slideshow of Adobe AIR apps which though can’t replace the browser like the title claims, are good to have.

Ariel came across a unique Firefox issue – the zoom feature messes up the iframes with Flex – and discovered a fix. I hope you’ve read his interview about Pearltrees on Flex RIA.

Lastly, this must be the funniest comment on our blog yet.

    I admit, I have not been on this webpage in a long time… however it was another joy to see It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even
    professionals. I thank you to help making people more aware of possible issues.
    Great stuff as usual….
