Adobe AIR Rocks!

leave a comment »

By now, if you are much of a internet news digger, you probably have heard of Adobe AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime), formerly code-named Apollo, is a cross-operating system runtime that allows developers to use their existing web development skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop.

Check out some demos and information here but if you are like me… someone who have not done programming for a long long time… this AIR is certainly to get your blood boiling again!!!

The kind of interface, design that one can come up with is just amazing! The similar competing platform will be Microsoft Silverlight which is currently limited to mostly video streaming but version 1.1 will add a lot of the .NET stuff into it and allow for literally, very cool looking application / integration using existing programming skill and run your application in most browser (currently support Windows, Mac and soon, Linux) as well as offline.

The world of application programming is just getting more fun.

I just tried out this demo of a Google Analytics AIR runtime and man, it just rocks!!! This give you a glimpse of what the possibilities are…

Whichever platform may dominates eventually, it does not matter to general user and we probably just need to install two runtime on the system and run them ALL!!! But to developers… the war on the next generation programming platform has just begun…
