Just a reminder that there is just one week left for the $1900 flex screencast competition (http://blog.flashden.net/general/flex-competition/). I’m pretty excited to see everyone’s entries!
For those of your that are on the fence about submitting an entry, there are few enough entries that your chances are good!
I think that just like with flash we will sell to two main types of buyers: Developers who could do it themselves, but buy stock to save time and those who buy out of box solutions that don’t require coding.
By the way, if someone builds a Flex desktop app that allows me to keep track of freelance hours on different projects, I will be your first sale!
I spent some time trying to learn Flex, but at the time my as3 was really bad. I think I’ll have to give it another shot now that my as3 skills are up to par.
By the way, we don’t have an exact date, but we are going to be accepting Flex very soon. Here is the post with more info: http://blog.flashden.net/general/flex-competition/.
The source will need to be included just like for the Flash files and it will still fall under the microstock system like FlashDen – Small prices, but lots of sales. It might be a little slow at first, but I think there is going to be a great market for these files.
As you guys probably already know, the earning rates for FlashDen authors are about to change from 35-50% to 40-70%. The big rate change is going to take effect this Sunday. The rates won’t change automatically, so keep your eyes on the blog because on Monday for detailed instructions on how to make the switch. We’ll also send the same information to all authors via email. Enjoy your raise!
