After the tremendous response from my previous post, I was wondering if it was a good idea to create a poll to see exactly how people are developing their Flash content.
As luck would have it, shortly thereafter @RichTreolta was pinging the Twittersphere to get feedback on ideas for new InsideRIA polls. So, I submitted my idea and it was chosen! Rich has posted a poll on InsideRIA to get a feel for how the community chooses to create Flash content. Let everyone know which IDE you primarily use to create Flash content! (No multiple selections as it is now.) http://www.insideria.com/2009/05/new-poll-what-ide-do-you-use-t.html
Update: The poll is now closed with a rather paltry 369 votes. I must say I’m a little disappointed that more people didn’t participate, but that doesn’t mean the results are without substance. The clear favorite was Flex Builder 3, with nearly 42% reporting it as their Flash IDE of choice. I really can’t say I’m surprised.
However, the most interesting tidbit was which program was in the 2nd place slot. FlashDevelop came in with almost 18% of the votes, and while I have definitely heard of it, I myself have not taken the time to see why so many developers enjoy working in it. I’ll set aside some time soon to give it a test drive and report my results here. In the meantime, you can see the InsideRIA poll findings here.
Thanks again to Rich Tretola for picking my poll idea!
