    Adobe RIA Flex's ease of use is without a doubt the next level of web technology. For companies that offer online services and want to stay ahead of the competition, they should aim to use Adobe Flex (or Microsoft's, Silverlight).

  • Newsgroups
  • Newsgroups and conferences are very important if you're a small software company. This is where you compensate for being outnumbered by your larger competitors.
    We strongly recommend that you sign up and get involved in networking. In a year you can learn the equivalent of 10 years research.

    Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP)
    The ASP is probably the best newsgroup for English speaking software developers.
    ASP newsgroup organizes conferences so you can actually meet and learn intensively from the members.
    http://www.asp-shareware.org

    ISDEF
    If you are a Russian speaking developer than the ISDEF is something you would want to be a part of. You will have to contact them in order to get into this strong and supporting community, and like the ASP newsgroup, it also has its own conferences.
    http://www.isdef.org/en/index.php

    European Software Conference
    The European Software Conference is smaller than the ones above but we suggest you read about them on their web site, especially if you're a software developer from Europe who can't get into the conferences in the US.
