There are so few metrics to go by when judging how popular a language is, but I think this is a good sign for Flex. Chafic Kazoun and Joey Lott’s book, Programming Flex 2, is currently 21 on the Amazon.com Computer Book List. I’ve heard it’s gotten as high as 15. This is a ranking, updated hourly, of the most popular books on the site.
Part of this may be due to the fact that Adobe has been helping folks out when they add Flex 2 to their wishlists, but that doesn’t necessarily skew the data; people are still interested in Flex books. I think this is a really good sign.
