Zend and Adobe Partner!

Today we announced a partnership with Adobe Systems. The goal of the partnership is to make it easier for developers to use Flex with PHP. I am excited about this partnership as it helps deliver a premier RIA technology to our users.

As part of the collaboration we will make sure that our users can successfully plug-in Flex Builder into Zend Studio for Eclipse. This is a good testament for the benefits of the Eclipse eco-system which was one of the main reason we chose it for our next-generation of Zend Studio. Also, as I've already mentioned in a previous post, Adobe has joined the ZF community.

Strengths of Flex include significant productivity gains, WYSIWYG tooling with Flex Builder, good performance, support in Adobe AIR which helps bridge Web applications to the desktop and many more cool features. I really think Adobe has very exciting technology for building RIAs and recommend people familiarize themselves with Flex. You will probably quickly get a good feeling for what use-cases you'd want to use Flex in and when Ajax. In fact, you are even able to use both within the same Web application.

In addition, we will work on publishing more developer oriented content so that we make it easier to get started. We have already started putting some content together which you can find on Adobe's Flex PHP Developer Zone. There are also several articles on Flex, AIR and PHP on the Zend Developer Zone.

If you've already made good use of PHP and Flex and think that your company would make a good case-study please let me know. You can email me at andi@youknowthecompany.com.
