Fine, don't sell me a copy of Flex!
Over the last month I have started really getting into Flex. Of course I absolutely love using it, just like all the other Flex users out there will also testify to.
I have already built 2 pretty cool apps that are running on my local machine right now, and I have decided that I really want to bring Flex fully into our development and staging enviornment here in the office.
So, I start on the road to getting pricing information on the server. I start by going to the Macromedia site:
hmm, no pricing info here, so last week i decided I would fill out the form to have Macromedia contact me:
After doing so, haven't got a response yet.
Then I proceeded to take the initiative and call about it. I dialed the number, it took me to Macromedia Canada, and began reading me a list of sales associates. Press 1 for "Some guy", Press 2 for "Another guy", etc.
I have no idea who I want to talk to, I just want Flex pricing information for a company like ours, and hopefully purchase a copy of the software within the week. Pressing 0 just repeats the list again.
Anyways, I tried #1 and #2 and both were voice mail. I am not really interested in buying Macromedia's crazy expensive server at their convenience.
So if anyone out there involved in selling Flex wants a potential customer, give us a call here at Teknision.
I am a bit suprised that the process for purchasing the server is so loose. It worries me that there isn't really a price, it is whatever a sales guy can price it at.
If I can buy ColdFusion from the Macromedia store, why can I not do the same for Flex?
