DevelopmentArc will be attending the 2009 Interactive South By Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas.  This will be the first year that Aaron and I have attended the Interactive conference.  I have been to the Music portion of the conference for the last three years and I have throughly enjoyed it.  We are looking forward to seeing what the Interactive conference has to offer and to meet fellow industry members.  If you are attending SXSW and would like to meet up with us, let us know!

Starting back in June of 2008, I became a regular contributor to the Adobe Edge Newsletter. My most recent article, "The Future of Flex Components" was just published in the February 2009 edition.

In the same edition, our good friend Doug Winnie also has a new article. In "An iterative approach to the designer-developer workflow", Doug discusses how designers and developer work using an iterative process and how this process can be applied to make a more cohesive team and product.

The newest release of DevelopmentArc Core is now available on the Google Code Repository.  This release is the first release of the library under the new Core moniker.  Previously the library was released under the Vivisecting Media Code Library, which has been now been deprecated since Core is publicly available.  All updates and new features will be added to the Core system moving forward.

From the code depot you can download a compiled SWC or a ZIP file that contains all the source and ASDoc generated files.  We have posted the ADoc files on-line so that you can easily access them if you do not download them.  Currently, we have 219 unit tests running and passing for the library, which are all available from the source tree if you wish to access them.
