I can’t believe it’s been over two years since I’ve written a blog post. Simply incredible, particularly because it feels like it’s only been a few months.

There have been a lot of Flex related developments in the industry during that time, the least of which was being hung out to dry by Adobe. I still receive one or two Flex related contract inquiries a month; and I still use it from time to time when I want to crank out a personal app for something or other. However, I can’t (in good conscience) at this point, recommend Flex for an enterprise application that will need to be supported for longer than 2-3 years. Maybe that will change someday, but I won’t be holding my breath in the meantime.

In that time I’ve also started a web hosting company. Shared hosting isn’t really my thing, if you’re looking for shared hosting go to GoDaddy or Bluehost– they can do it for cheaper. I specialize in those whose needs have outgrown what shared hosting can offer. If you think that describes you, then get in touch.

I also still do lots of development, mostly in Java. Some Grails, and I’ve been dabbling in Angular (though it’s painful to work with Javascript after having used the vastly superior ActionScript for many years). Please don’t argue this point– people who have never done any Flex programming really have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to this.

That said, if I do make time to start writing again (which I really hope to do) expect to see a shift in the things I write about.
