Here are three articles that I read in the last week or so that were really interesting:-
HTML5 vs Flash – at a Flash conference – Good to see the usual sensationalism of the HTML5 vs Flash argument dissipating into a more intelligent discussion about using the right tools for the right job – http://www.examiner.com/technology-in-san-francisco/html5-vs-flash-at-a-flash-conference
Web Multimedia – 6 reasons why Flash isn’t going away – A refreshing read for Flash devs, many valid points made – http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9180776/Web_multimedia_6_reasons_why_Flash_isn_t_going_away?taxonomyId=167&pageNumber=1
iPhone apps: British designers on the key to creating a hit – Some excellent insight and interviews from British App makers in this Guardian article – http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2010/jul/04/technology-software-iphone-app
I just saw an interesting retweet from Aral Balkan about as3swf. It’s an AIR app that can load up a swf and then spit out useable Objective-C UIView subclasses for use in iPhone development. Very nice.
Grant Skinner is one of my favourite Flash devs. His work, presentations and contributions to the Flash community are absolutely amazing. I have been looking forward to hearing his thoughts on the fascinating subject of the future of Flash. Unsuprisingly he gives a very intelligent, mature, balanced and thoughtful perspective. Enjoy.
