The future of Flash and Adobe

13 Jul07

This is a great read for anyone curious about where Adobe may be heading with Flash - An AIR of Invisibility: Adobe has Microsoft in its sights. The article points out that Flash (and PDF) is now everywhere and to such an extent that it’s just one of those things you expect from a decent device. If it can’t do Flash, then it IS a watered down version of the internet.

There’s just one point that the author fully misses on as he says “... and there are just as many Flash developers as Java developers”. This is just plain wrong. Every university teaches Java, but very few teach Flash. This is certainly something Adobe should focus more on, as the demand for Flash talent is extreme now.

    I think public point of view at Flash Player should be changed too to drive the attention to Flash as not to eye-candy presentation platform but as to powerful development and runtime environment.
