Adobe Creative Cloud continues to evolve moving into 2016. One of the biggest changes set to take place is the rebranding of Adobe Flash within the Creative Cloud.

For producers that use Adobe Flash to create rich animations, the primary functions in early 2016 will be under Animate CC. The Adobe team is also adding more options to create compelling motion graphics for online different audiences. One of the new options will allow users to export to an array of new file types.

Web users will continue to see the Adobe Flash Player as the tool to view the animations online.

Despite countless rumors from online sources, Adobe Flash is not going away anytime soon. It will be rebranded, like any product that is in the tech sector within the marketplace for over five years. Just recently, Apple integrated with the Adobe Flash to provide it on IOS devices.

In addition, the company’s stock has also been on the rise for the past five years. Here is a quick breakdown from Adobe on their growth in 2015.

Dreamweaver is an application that I have a strong connection to overall. In 2006, after experimenting with MySpace, I asked a friend that codes, if she knew anyway for me to learn how to code on the computer. She loaned me a copy of Dreamweaver 3. After returning it to her, I went on to buy two editions of the software, as well as picking up a subscription to the Creative Cloud.

It is important to learn how to code on a variety of code editors to get a sense of the differences, and options with the different applications. Overall, I still use Dreamweaver to edit code, but primarily use WordPress to publish content to the Web.

Now, almost 10 year later, I find myself learning javascript, HTML5 and C++. Dreamweaver doesn’t exactly help users learn how to code, but rather a sense of how the code will look during the production process. Code.org is an excellent tool online to learn how to write code.
