Flex / Catalyst based RIA's, today

Hello Friends,

with the raising Adobe Catalyst, Flash-Builder, Design-Tools (PS, AI, FW etc..) round trip opportunity things might change a lot.

But there are still prejudices against using Flash based technology.

Opportunists refer most time to Jakob Nielsen  or nowadays Steve Jobs.

In the following I use Flash as synonym for Flex, Catalyst based RIAs.

RIA Usage Datas

Hi @all,

I am currently looking for links to studies and datas about RIA usages and especially new usages on SaaS applications and web 2.0  websites.
I would like to find demographic data on how users perceive functions and tools like drag and drop, widgets, dashboard, etc.

In advance, many thanks for your help

Another Flash-FLEX question - design books?

I promise this isn't related to my previous Flash question - just coincidence.

Are there books people would recommend that talk about how to create
good designs in Flash/FLEX. For example, there appear to be
particular ways one has to work with CSS to get the effect one might
want. And there is a particular widget set that has certain
affordances, some of which seem better than others. I'm looking more
for some "how to" and "best practices" information than I am general
design pattern type stuff. But I'll take what I can get.

Thanks in advance,

Flex? (was: What's exciting in Adobe Thermo?)

So, all this talk about Thermo and how it integrates into Flex... but
do people use Flex for real projects? I have yet to see any web
app/site that really uses Flex for an RIA.. most apps still use (and
will use IMHO) web standard technologies like html, css, javascript,

What are people suing Flex for? intranet apps? industrial?

Rapid Prototyping Tools


I am looking for a tool that would essentially allow me to make a "paper
prototype" that I can share with a remote participant. I have been
using DENIM (http://dub.washington.edu/denim/)- which does everything I
need. I am looking for an alternative because of performance issues.
Any recommendations?
