All the best for the apps that you all are building. Idea Checkpoint date has passed and we got a lot of entries. Our team went through each of them and gave detailed feedback to each entry. The ideas have been exciting. Cant wait for the next check point 🙂

We have been getting this query quite a lot these days. Now that the “Idea Checkpoint” dates are passed, a lot of people are having doubts if the registrations are closed. So here putting to rest those concerns:

The registrations for Adobe riathon ’08 [link] are open till the night of 13th January, 2009. You can register anytime. The checkpoints are optional and for people who want to leverage our feedback and want to have a chance to win some Adobe branded merchandise..

Hope that was clear 🙂 If you have any more queries, mail to riaevent@adobe.com. We will post answers to queries that reccur, for the good of all…

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and All the Best !

Tour de Flex is a desktop application for exploring Flex capabilities and resources, including the core Flex components, Adobe AIR and data integration, as well as a variety of third-party components, effects, skins, and more.

It can be a great help during riathon ’08 as it has readily available sample code to connect to a lot of cloud services including Flickr, Amazon, lastFm…etc. Don’t forget to checkout the CloudAPIs, Mapping and Other Components section on the app. There’s even a Tour de Flex Eclipse Plugin…
