Flex India community grows more

Mrinal posted about the (1000+) numbers, that is, number of members in Flex India community (flex-india). It’s really nice to see how number has grown, it surely validates that a lot more companies are using Adobe RIA technologies (Flex/Flash/AIR).
Not very long back, almost same time last year, we started discussing how to build Flex/Flash/AIR ecosystem in India. Though figures are encouraging, I feel, we still have a long way to go. Following are things, I would personally like to see and do:-

  • More participation internationally (via flexcoders, blogs, etc)
  • More code contribution (components, libraries, etc)
  • More innovation (quality discussions, product development, etc)

We know that, most of us (Indian developers) are driven by client’s requirement, which means most of the Indian companies are using Adobe RIA technologies because that’s a requirement. What I would like to see, more proactive approach towards technology adoption, once that happens, the vision (above points) would come true.
I am sure, it would happen, I have been optimistic. I would try to my bits my way 🙂
Congratulations to everyone for achieving this milestone and all the best for future.

  • I must appreciate your effort to encourage Indian Developers to blog and contribute to the community development.I remember when you made the first draft of your Indian flex/flash bloggers list to put in your blog. That was really a great initiative to make them feel that they can also contribute. We have lots of good developers in our country but they just don not want to come out from their routine life.I think things are changing!

  • Yes you are right Abdul .. we are busy to complete our client requirements.. we need to do more with creating more components and excellent stuffs…that will tell every one rest of the world…

  • Hi Abdul,
    I agree that quality matters than quantity. Most of Indian Flex developers is driven my client requirement. But my case is slightly different. I loved how easy it was to develop powerful n beautiful applications with Flex and I have always been a great fan of macromedia products. Now I am driving my clients to use flex and as a freelancer my clients are also happy with my work and willing to get me more work.

  • That’s inspiring that the number of Flex developers all over the world is increasing! I totally agree with your three points on improving the situation, and I would suggest adding one more thing, that is creating Flex Developer Communities and organizing Adobe Flex events, so that people would be able to learn more from each other and share experience in an offline mode. Success to you!
