Subject Re: educational software development
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2013 07:50:22 GMT
    I have been developing the same educational app "units of sound" in a HyperCard type tool
ToolBook for the past  16 years, 3 years ago we started the process to move this app to flex,

I have no regrets so far, however I know I may have to recode in to HTML5 in the next 3-5
years depending on how flex develops, I hope I do not have to do this, if I was starting today,I
think I would have gone down the HTML5 road, HTML 5 and the supporting frameworks have come
on a lot in the past 3 years

Unlike commercial software, educational software is not a highly profitable product, so we
have a  small team

In this market you must have a tablet version of you product, I hope to save a lot of time
with the flex AIR / Tablet

I found design the hardest part of the project, until adobe gave up with flex you had so many
way of approaching you project and no clear winner, now most if not all of these frameworks
have gone/ past away, the road is clear, KISS, use simple MVC and stay within the simple flex
frame work you can

The other big help in FLEX is the 1000's of example of how to do X Y Z on the web, and the
support from this group


PS launch of units of sound UK English q4, US English Q1 CY 14' yes us Brits are coming to
the US to teach you how to read :)
