Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) and Facebook® today announced a joint effort to enable Web developers to create more compelling applications using the Adobe® Flash® Platform and Facebook Platform.
Officially supported by Adobe and Facebook, the new ActionScript® 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform is a free and open source programming language library that is expected to be a complete resource supporting all Facebook application programming interfaces (APIs) including Facebook Connect.
Documentation, example applications and code are now available at http://www.adobe.com/go/facebook for developers to get started building rich applications with Adobe Flash and Flex software, and Facebook Platform.
Ethan Beard, director of platform marketing, Facebook
“Our vision is to empower the world's developers to make the Web more social with Facebook Platform and through Facebook Connect,” said Ethan Beard, director of platform marketing, Facebook. “With our official support of the ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform, our innovative community of developers can more easily use the Adobe Flash Platform to create the next generation of applications that will allow users to engage with the people they care about in even more expressive ways.”
Bryant Macy, director of product marketing for the Platform Business Unit, Adobe
“Combining social functionality with the Adobe Flash Platform gives the millions of Flash developers the tools to create Web experiences that are truly differentiated,” said Bryant Macy, director of product marketing for the Platform Business Unit at Adobe. “Flash developers are already creating great applications for Facebook, and the new ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform will accelerate the pace of social innovation on the Web.”
Sebastien de Halleux, chief operating officer and co-founder of Playfish
“Since 2007, Playfish has leveraged Facebook Platform and the Flash Platform to create fun and engaging social games that are now played by more than 60 million registered users around the world,” said Sebastien de Halleux, chief operating officer and co-founder of Playfish. “We believe social networks are the next generation game platform and today's announcement is a further step toward creating experiences that are more social and visually compelling.”
Adobe Flash Platform Powers Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and Supports All Facebook APIs
• Many developers already use Adobe Flash software, including the open source Flex framework, to build applications on Facebook, or use Facebook Connect, and the new ActionScript library affirms that applications created with the Adobe Flash Platform will continue to be an integral part of the Facebook ecosystem.
• The ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform is open source and fully supported by Adobe and Facebook — developed in collaboration by Adobe, Facebook and the community of developers.
• The new ActionScript 3 library for Facebook includes support for 60 new APIs, which are consistent with current Facebook Platform APIs to ensure seamless implementation.
• ActionScript 3 is the object-oriented programming language for Adobe Flash technology, which is ideally suited for developing rich Internet applications (RIAs).
Adobe Flash Platform: Innovation That Stands Out, Technology That Fits In
• The Adobe Flash Platform is a complete system of integrated tools, frameworks, clients and servers for the development of Web applications, content and video that runs consistently across operating systems and devices.
• Adobe Flash Player content reaches over 98 percent of Internet-enabled desktops, and Adobe Flash technology is the No. 1 platform for video on the Web.
The ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform is available immediately as a free download along with developer documentation and tutorials at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/facebook.
Adobe at Web 2.0 Expo 2009
• Web 2.0 Expo attendees come to the Adobe booth (#615) on Wednesday April 1 and Thursday April 2 to meet with Adobe and Facebook representatives to learn more about the ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform.
• Watch the keynote address of Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch on Thursday, April 2 at 9:50 a.m. PT.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
