Scoble posted the video of an Avalon presentation over at Channel9 while I was away on vacation. The video is pretty impressive and they do a good job of showing off Avalon as a solution to a problem. It’s definitely worth a look because some of the features are pretty cool. I like the fact that they placed such a big emphasis on security in their presentation, because the applications that Flex/Avalon will be able to impact the most will have some high security requirements (think healthcare in the video and financial firms and student data for some of our projects).
I’m sure Flex 2.0 will be able to do a lot of the things that the demo shows in this video, but the Microsoft team did make good use of the Direct3D engine and the 3D graphs are pretty impressive.Tweet
