...when I’m able to develop a tool like this for Photoshop in Flex, it just gives me a good feeling ;)

Nice extension Marco ….

But regarding your statement “Flash may be dead, but… “ let me organize this for you, if flash will be dead, Flex will be in the grave way way before “Flash may be dead, but… “ :P

Unfortunately Flex is already in the grave… the Apache project seems to be going nowhere…

Anyway… it’s still fun to play with it sometimes…

At the moment I’m working on some ebooks made in Flex, that still generates some revenue for me, but I don’t know how long will it last :)

Still, I’ve heard in London there’s much request for Flex developers (banks, etc…). It seems no developer wants to risk on this technology anymore…

Good morning Marco(you go sleep late and get up early in the morning :P sound like me ) ,I think we are exaggerate about the topic ,there is still lots of work demand in the area just not much for freelancing work like we use to have.

The most demanded topic in flash/flex today is anything that involve Adobe media sever, i get lots of request, thing is its not and easy topic, and its time consuming, but overall i get more and more request for complex projects ,look like many companies try to cut the salary fee of full time flash/flex dev` and look for freelancing solution, and it doesn’t work for them .

Also i know in Brazil (I am in Israel now) the amount of project flash/flex tender in media is increasing dramatic, look like the in WC Flash media sever will be all over …

Regarding flash game and Adobe new direction i can say now for sure it’s a failure.

Me ? i just try to focuses more and more on the mobile world ,this is one sector i think i have the room to make good cash ….. But overall flash will be just a hobby for me as i am really trying to get out of the industry and do something else

Well… I totally agree…

Me too… That’s why I’m using my Flex knowledge to build tools that suit my new Android developing needs ;)
