Flex Non-Commercial License

by kai on 05/10/2004

This is great! Macromedia finally did it and just announced a Flex Non-Commercial/Non-institutional deployment license!

Quick highlights:

– if you intend to use Flex in a non-commercial and non-institutional manner like for educational purposes, community web pages, weblogs, students at schools and universities – you might qualify for this license

– you’ll get a package of software which you are allowed to use in a server and development environment and which provides you with a way to deploy your own non-commercial Flex applications

– there are no license costs besides $8.99 for shipping and handling costs

Oh boy, now I have to learn Flex. I thought I would come around that because of the price! šŸ˜‰

Now this seems to be the time to give it a chance. Hope I will find the time for it.

Great news.

That’s the ticket, Macromedia…
This might even bring some teachers to the idea of letting / forcing šŸ™‚ students learn flex…

Well, it just so happens that Laszlo Systems, a XML-native platform for building rich client applications went open source today.
