Free Adobe Flash Builder (for Students and Unemployed)

submitted on September 25, 2010 by YanBz in "Products / Gadgets"
I just found out via Slashdot that Adobe is giving away Adobe Flash Builder 4 Standard for free to students and unemployed. Obviously this deal is only any good if you are a software developer planning to use Flash.

We provide free copies of Adobe Flash Builder 4 Standard to:

* Students, faculty and staff of eligible educational institutions
* Software developers who are affected by the current economic condition and are currently unemployed
* Event attendees who receive a special promotional code at their event

I applied for a license and got this reply:

    When they made a similar offer back in April, it turned out to be a 60-day trial. I hope this one is longer. They do include a free training video and some other resources in the Flex Developer Center at .

      Flash is a programming language that you can use anywhere - web, Windows, Linux, Android phones, etc. Sort of like Java was supposed to be - write once use everywhere. Flash Builder is a development environment for Flash.
