My benevolent employers at Adobe have fulfilled my dream, and granted me the title of Technical Evangelist in the Flex Product line.

Now I start the second leg. But as Spidey says “With great power comes great responsibility!” 🙂
I’ll now be a part of the Tech Evangelism team based out of India which includes Prayank & Ramesh. But my work is not India specific and would love to hear from individuals and communities worldwide. I personally would like to see Flex taking over the world. The potential is really there… as we see by the statistics in India and elsewhere. There are a lot of really knowledgeable people out there, but they need to be brought onto a global platform to interact and innovate. And hopefully I can help.

Community has been the backbone of the success of all products at Adobe (and erstwhile Macromedia) and its concerns will surely remain as one of our primary concerns in the future too. Now with Flex going open source, I can really say,
