Re: Life after FlashPlayer, are you prepared?

We rewrite our flex applications using Angular and I must say it improved
significantly after making TypeScript part of the framework, alongside
major performance enhancements.
In addition, in some of the pure actionscript logic classes we can actually
copy & paste some functions with a few syntax adjustments.
The only problem we still have is around live video streaming, where we
still use small flash applications for RTMP streaming, but we hope WebRTC
would be production-ready for our needs soon.
