Adobe on developers, MAXUP, the New York Times Reader and a great resource for Windows Presentation Foundation.


  • Mike Potter of Adobe has a good roundup of the developer-targeted initiatives within the company. Seeing them all listed really does make you stop and think about how far they've come. Adobe is no longer just for designers.
  • Ted Patrick, Adobe's Flex Evangelist has a presentation regarding MAXUP. I'm going to have more on MAXUP later, but this is a BarCamp-style conference that is being run in parallel to Adobe's MAX conference in Las Vegas.
  • The New York Times Reader launched but I cannot, for the life of me, get it to work, so I haven't been able to do a review yet. I gave my thoughts on the product a couple of weeks ago.
  • Very good overview of Windows Presentation Foundation over on the newly redesigned MSDN. Covers everything from using WPF with Win Forms to XBAPs and WPF/E.
