      I was just curious why .Net was chosen for the back-end technology. When Adobe Air Powered by Adobe Flex is Cross platform. I’m not trying to sound like an Ad for Adobe and I don’t work for Adobe… but I am a Flex Developer.

      .NET was chosen mostly because 1) it has WPF which is vector-based; 2) it allows to code in a functional language like F#. Tabbles is entirely written in F#, which greatly reduces development time; 3) the .net api is huge and well backed, which in our eyes reduced the risk not to find the function that will do what you need.

      I confess I had never heard of Adobe Air, which is interesting, being cross-platform.

      Cool thanks for the details… I was just cruious. I hope I’m not violating any board/forum rules… but information about Adobe Air is available here if you’re or anyone else is interested in learning about it. It’s a cool and fast development platform…

      Andrew,

      you’re not violating any rule, indeed we’re very happy to share and discuss the technical details of Tabbles 🙂
      Any other question is more than welcome!

      We’ve actually registered a blog on google blog, but we didn’t have the time to write anything about it yet.

      best,

      Andrea

      Oh a blog you say??? Can’t wait to see it…

      Andrea, I meant I hope I wasn’t violating forum policies and rules by linking to outside company sites… So companies doesn’t like it. I was just making sure so I wasn’t unintentionally violating a forum policy.

      You must be doing a great job as I haven’t noticed much spam at all on the forums!
