HELL YEAH! WE SHIPPED THIS THING :)

I have been impatiently waiting for this day… And it has finally arrived... "We, the FLEX TEAM, hereby declare that the FLEX2 Product line is finally out and ready for anyone who wants to provide an awesome experience on the web"... HURRAY!!! It feels so awesome just to say that.

I remember when I was small (I mean, I was in 8th or 9th grade), I used to stare at the splash screen of Adobe Photoshop and look in awe at the credits of those who participated in the product design (I was specially thrilled to find some Indian names there). Then it became a practice that I used to look at the credits of most products I used (especially Flash 5 and Winamp) and dream of the day when I would be on the credits of some product... But I never believed I would.

Now just 1 year into my foray to the software world, my wildest dream has come true. I'm on the credits page of the FLEX Product Line, and man it feels awesome. I was itching to put it up since it came in the internal build, but had to forcefully stop myself till the product shipped...

Incredible... Isn't it!

It has been a very rewarding and exciting journey for me in the last 10 months with FLEX2. A very alien technology for me when I joined has become a part of my life now. I’m so thrilled that I do not have words to express my excitement… So here’s to FLEX and to all the hard work and toil we went through to make it possible… CHEERS!!!

Wow!!! we do rock... only time will tell how big, and it's gonna tell quite soon. I have a feeling that it is going to put the known world web axis a little out of it's ordinary spin. It's been a pleasure working on Flex 2.0 and the AS 3.0 ECMA Script compilant language. Adobe Flash player 9 is going to take the world by storm!!! Just to let you all know a little of the MXML language... It was named after the loved company that I joined in as, Macromedia, though it is Adobe now, the heart of the matter started in Macromedia, which had the vision ,innovation, ideas and the people to make such a big shift in the way we view the web!!! I could go on and on and on... but hell, I’ll let you go and check it out for yourself... Enjoy the experience... after all - Experience Matters!
