Future Of Flash Is Open Source

Upside Learning

Adobe, recently announced moving their open-source development to Sourceforge. Looks like a desire to speed up their open-source development around the Flash platform. The new portal called Open@Adobe will hold Adobe’s open source projects in coming days. We advocate the need of openness at Adobe especially for their Flash runtimes. Although Adobe has a range of open-source projects they haven’t yet fully “opened” both the Flash runtimes.

HTML 5 and eLearning Development

Upside Learning

Those of you have heard of HTML 5 will know it’s a new version of HTML and XHTML being promoted by Google and Apple in a bid to move the web away from proprietary technologies like Flash, Silverlight and JavaFX. The working draft of HTML 5 indicates a need to find suitable open source code which works on all browsers without licensing or patent fee. A couple of weeks back we posted about Silverlight posing some (at this time, actually little) competition to Flash.

Under this mobile learning misrepresentation, I can tell you that nearly every system out there – can make this argument – because if you can open up Safari and go to the vendor’s web site and then into your SaaS based LMS – then guess what? Even some of the folks who have an app in the Apple store or Android store, follows a similar pattern. Click on the app and your default browser opens and off you go. Open Source Commercial.

HTML5 making inroads with Apple and Mozilla

Aptara

HTML5 making inroads with Apple and Mozilla. Adobe Flash lost its bid to become the main content distribution language when Apple pulled support, meaning developers have had to look further afield. One of the major factors pointing to an HTML5 takeover has always been the ability to create solutions that will work with Apple iOS devices. The past few years have seen an explosion of ways to distribute and experience content.
