URIs to Ping

The following services will automatically be pinged/notified when you publish posts. Not when you edit previously published posts, as WordPress does by default.

NB: this list is synchronized with the original update services list.

Separate multiple service URIs with line breaks:

These are the lastest actions performed by the plugin.

Developing Flex 4 Components Book

After what seems like a lifetime, I’m excited to announce that my Flex component book is finished — reviewed, edited, proofed, laid out and ready to get sent to the printers. For those who know me, this has been a long journey — not because I’m a slow writer; more because it was originally planned […]

CS5 E-Seminars Series: “App in a week”

Now that CS5 is available, the EMEA Evangelism team will be holding an Online Developer Week from 7th June – 10th June where we’ll be covering the entire design, develop and deploy workflow by building an application using Illustrator and Photoshop CS5 along side the Flash Platform suite of tools.

We’ll be focusing on Flash Builder, Flash Professional, Flash Catalyst and Flex 4 as well as the Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2.0 runtimes. Starting with designs from Photoshop and Illustrator and each day adding more functionality to our application so that by the end of the week we will have a fully functioning solution on multiple devices. In the process we’ll also be looking at P2P in relation to Flash Player 10.1 as well as how to link up your application to server technologies like LiveCycle, Java and PHP.
