Signs of Apollo …

Posted: March 4, 2007 in Apollo

Hello World,

Well, the signs are everywhere. Apollo is Near! For months we have been reading the blogs, viewing the video demos, and listening to the presentations … holding our breaths. Well here’s another sign of the coming of Apollo. O’Reilly has released a preview of the “Apollo for Adobe Flex Developer’s Pocket Guide” book. Go here ( Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers Pocket Guide) and you can browse the book and see a preview of the Table of Contents, the Index, and a Sample Chapter (Using the File System API). Accoring to O’Reily, the book is set to be released … well now. I’ve waited this long, I can wait a little longer. The book is even available for pre-order from the Amazon site (http://www.amazon.com/Apollo-Adobe-Developers-Pocket-Guide/dp/0596513917).

Apollo book

The was written by Mike Chambers, Rob Dixon, and Jeff Swartz. Mike Chambers has been our Apollo “town crier” for some time now. You can stay up-to-date with Apollo’s developments from his blog (http://weblogs.macromedia.com/mesh/).

Now this book is for the Alpha release of Apollo and thus may be lacking many of the features we hope to see in the finally release. However, by taking a look at the sample chapter you can see how simple it is to incorporate cross-platform, file system functionality into your Flex application. I already have at least one Flex app slated for an “Apollo conversion”.

So when is the book and the alpha version of Apollo due out? Soon . . . very soon.
