1,000,000 Samples Served by Tour de Flex!
This morning, we reached an awesome milestone with Tour de Flex – One Million Samples served! When the application is connected to the internet, it creates a log entry on our server every time a sample is viewed so we can track popularity of each sample. The log reached one million rows this morning. We are seeing between 30,000 and 50,000 samples viewed per day so it’s getting some good usage.
We’ve created an audience of Flex developers so I need your help to create more content! There are currently 217 samples in Tour de Flex on various subjects including the Flex SDK, AIR, Data Access, Cloud APIs, and more. I want to have 1,000 samples by mid-2009. If you have any code that you think would add value to the samples in Tour de Flex, please submit it! We are especially interested in showcasing new components, skins, effects, etc. Instructions for submitting your own samples can be found at http://gregsramblings.com/2008/11/23/tour-de-flex-how-to-add-your-components-effects-skins-etc/
We are already working on an update to the application to improve the installer size (utilizing RSLs) reduce the CPU usage, adding a ranking system, improving the commenting system, and some cosmetic improvements. We are also working on localizing some of the application and samples. Stay tuned!
