Adobe asks Ajaxians to beta test Apollo

Category: Adobe, Ajax

Adobe wants to make Apollo a great environment for Ajax developers.

They were looking to find a bunch of smart JavaScript hackers in the know to get involved in a private Beta of Adobe Apollo, and realised that the Ajaxian community was a great place for them to reach out.

Therefore, if you have an interest in trying out Apollo, and giving honest feedback to the team at Adobe simply send an email to apollobeta@adobe.com with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Email address
  • Why you are interesting in Apollo

Thanks, Marc. Apparently I was out of the loop not even having heard about Apollo before. Linkification gratification?

I signed up several times, and never receive any notifications from Adobe. Is Apollo really available for testing??? I’m perplexed.

Exclusive to Ajaxian? I get the feeling there aren’t alot of ActionScript geeks on here like myself.

I also am *interesting* in apollo :))

Dion, the typo is hilarious.

“Adobe wants to make Apollo a great environment for Ajax developers.”
Then maybe they should open source it so it can be a standard.

Submitted my email

isn’t the apollo environment supposed to allow any current web application to work offline, or is it just flash based applications

Yes. You can build applications that are Flash or HTML based (and Flash can contain HTML, HTML can contain Flash, etc…).

We are looking for HTML / JavaScript / Ajax developers right now to help us test, and get input on developing HTML based application for Apollo.

Maybe they should reach out to flash game portals instead of Ajaxian. Flash is good for entertainment, but as an application framework? give me a break! Been there done that!
>>Flash can contain HTML, HTML can contain Flash, etc
– HTML can contain flash, we are already doing that, flash contain HTML? Nonsense Over-structuring.
It sounds like a big “me too” rather than being something useful.

Flash cant really contain HTML, maybe a couple common tags, but i wouldn’t go so far as to use the “c” word.

Comment by Joshua Jonah — February 23, 2007

Joshua, in the context of APOLLO, Flash CAN contain HTML. Do your research. Apollo can be all html and ajax, html and flash, flash only, html only, etc. I think Mike knows what he’s talking about, he works for Adobe.

I have requested The beta download a number of times. but havent heard back. Same q.. is Apollo available for Beta testing at all?

Comment by Vandana Deep — February 24, 2007

At least *some* response to th people who offered themselves to beta test their new product would have been nice.

Not replying at all to the people who would like to take the time to test your software is not…

Comment by SchizoDuckie — March 16, 2007

I think it is ready for Beta testing now

Comment by Johanes — July 11, 2007

Thanks for this good news.
Adobe has done great job with Apollo (air).
