Rounding Up Last Week

Posted by Sravan | August 18, 2008 .

Flex 3 won InfoWorld’s Bossie (Best of Open Source Software Award) as the developer tool for RIAs. Congratulations and many thanks to all Flex developers. Interested folks can contribute in various ways to the Flex Open Source Project.

Catalonia has Olimpics.cat, China has CCTV, but sports fans of USA don’t need to feel left out anymore. They now have TeamUSA to track Olympics events in a trendier fashion. James Whittaker of RefreshingApps recommends this AIR widget. Or you can simply install Silverlight (if you haven’t already) to view thousands of hours of Olympics video online, streamed by NBC.

Ryan Stewart has another video interview, this time about Ruby and Flex with Simeon Bateman. “We cover Ruby from a Flex development standpoint and talk about how Flex and Rails can communicate,” Ryan writes in his blog. Forget the quality of the video and listen to it as if it were a podcast. But I still wish Ryan moved from Blip.tv.

Ashley Atkins (Razorberry) shares that his book AIR in Action is now in stores. Readers can also buy the book on Amazon, or the e-book on Manning. A couple of sample chapters are also available on the latter link. My best wishes, Ash.

Lastly, unrelated but interestingly, Ars Technica reveals that imeem and Lala are streaming unencrypted MP3s. Phew!

    Mia culpa, Kathryn. I wonder how I missed the Editorial Review in Amazon.

    I’m glad your book has received so many rave reviews. Congratulations!
