I work as an instructional designer and I am currently studying to attain Adobe's Web Specialist Certification. One of the required application/product for this certification is Adobe Flash. Now with the chatter and discussions online about the dmise of Adobe Flash and Adobe developing Adobe Edge as a replacement for Flash. I am left in a bit of a quandary.
I have contacted Adobe Customer Service and they were not very helpful and seemed less informed about news on Adobe Flash. Any information you may have on the matter would very helpful.
See sources about the news on Flash below - Granted some sources may be not trustworthy:
Flash for mobile devices will fade away; Flash for the desktop won't. Neither will Flex or other ancillary Flash-based applications. If your purpose for getting a certification is to be well-versed in Flash, then keep going - the principles and technology you learn will still be helpful in other technologies. If your reason for certification is to bolster your credentials then you may want to complete the Flash certification and also study HTML5 technologies.
