Amethyst Launch in FFD Magazine
The issue of Flash & Flex Developer’s Magazine has two features on Amethyst this month.
SapphireSteel Software’s Amethyst, the Flash Platform IDE for Microsoft Visual Studio, was launched on the 30th of August. If you would like to know more about Amethyst, the September issues of Flash & Flex Developer’s Magazine is a great place to look.
This issue carries two in-depth features on Amethyst. The first of these, called Introducing Amethyst, provides an overview of the core features of Amethyst Professional such as: the visual Designer for Flex, IntelliSense, refactoring, code formatting, code browsing and debugging.
The second Amethyst feature is an interview (with yours truly) which goes into some of the background of Amethyst: how did we manage to integrated a Flex-based Designer into Visual Studio? Why would Microsoft developers want to use Flash instead of Silverlight? What is special about the Amethyst Cylon debugger? (and much more...)
The magazine comes as a free PDF download. Available from the FFD Magazine web site.
