Does anyone remember my posting a while ago about Adobe purchasing Flex books from Amazon Wishlists? I remember quite a few people doubting it was true. When I originally heard the news, I immediately set up a wishlist and added every Flex resource I didn't already have.
After my nice long vacation in the Florida Keys, I came home to a nice surprise! A package from Amazon containing the Lynda videos for Flex!
So, yes it is true. Adobe isn't just going Mad Hatter, of course. I imagine they have a budget and they dole out some books from time to time. I am very happy to be the recipient.
Turns out I already have the Lynda Videos. I was slow in removing them from the wishlist. The only proper thing for me to do was give them to some other deserving soul. Sean has agreed to host a 1,000,000 hits contest for the Videos. You can find details of the contest at Sean's blog.
A big thank you to Mike Potter and the Flex.org team for their continued community support.
