How Adobe’s “Apollo” Team is using CC

Melissa Reeder, March 20th, 2007

Adobe has recently released a new project called Apollo. According to their announcement Apollo is “the code name for a cross-operating system runtime that allows developers to leverage their existing web development skills (Flash, Flex, HTML, JavaScript, Ajax) to build and deploy rich Internet applications (RISs) to the desktop.

To accompany the release Apollo team members Mike Chambers, Rob Dixon, and Jeff Scwartz wrote the “Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers Pocket Guide” which was published by O’Reilly. This pocket guide is available under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA version 2.5 license and is available for download here.

The Apollo team concurrently launched a video site which hosts videos about Flex and Apollo development. The content of this site is also CC licensed. By CC licensing the pocket guide and video site Adobe’s Apollo team is encouraging the sharing of Apollo knowledge and experiences that everyone can use and build upon.
