Central – A framework & platform

I looked at Central SDK docs, specially APIs. Its really nice to see a good collection of APIs. Its very easy to make a application for Central.
No need to figure out how you going to handle communication between Pods, Agents and Applications etc. Central takes care of all these. For example, LCService Object wraps the LocalConnection and extends its functionalities.
Similarly there are Classes/Object for Regular Expressions (RegExp), SOAP, RPC, WebServices, String, MD5 Hash etc.
Central is Good framework and Platform to deploy applications. Forthcoming support for AIM/ICQ IM service would really be good add-ons.
Lets wait and see …

Central Developer Network

David Bisset and other Central developers have formed Central Developer Network. Its good to see that Central developers community is growing. I am sure more and more Flash developers would jump in Central Development. CDN would really be useful to them.
I am lagging behind, I am still developing applications in Flash 5 because of project requirements such as Player Penetration etc. Anyway, I am not hopeless, I would soon be doing some good projects in AS2 and Central.
BTW! I have put a Central Badge on left, isn’t it looking cute? :)
