These days good design is the key to any successful product, website, ad campaign, you name it. With these discounted resources, you can step up your design game and your pay scale at the same time. From drawing by hand with Adobe, to web development lessons and a library of design assets, there’s something here for anyone looking to improve their marketability in a design-conscious industry.
Video game streaming juggernaut Twitch.tv is stepping up its HTML5 game today with a move to get rid of buggy and overly-patched Flash in Twitch’s website.
The move today is only for the player part of the equation, but a full HTML5 solution should be forthcoming.
Though Adobe Flash has been dying a slow death over the past few years, it’s far from dead yet. However, it seems like some people are getting pretty impatient with it and Facebook’s new chief security officer Alex Stamos is one of those people. He publicly tweeted yesterday calling out Adobe to just set a date already to kill Flash and make an announcement to put an end to its misery.
That was the month that Steve Jobs penned his famous “Thoughts on Flash” memo, in which he soundly rejected any and all reasons for Apple to adopt Flash on the iOS operating system.
Jobs famously said that Flash was too battery-hungry, too unreliable, too insecure, too slow and too closed to be a wise platform for the mobile-first developers of then-tomorrow. And people scoffed at the time.
