And I found one. These days RIA tools are created mainly to two groups of people: Web Developers and UI Designers. The second group is represented by creative people who can design screens but are not programmers. Big guys like Adobe are trying to come with tools that would bring together these two groups of people who currently live in different planets. For example, the rumor has it that Adobe is going to release Thermo Beta this Summer. It allows designers to drag and drop and Flex code will be automatically generated based on their creative moveme... (more)
