AppDynamics empowers the world's largest customers to digitally transform themselves, offering intelligence, correlation and insights at every level of infrastructure, security and application.  Customers can make more informed IT decisions, improving business results.

Here are two videos of Danny speaking on behalf of Adobe Flash:


This video, Flex Community Summit: December 2011, features Danny discussing  Flash Platform Changes   Notable is the Q & A portion beginning in this long video at around 43:00.  In the short-term, these changes met with multiple  concerns in Adobe's developer market.  For me, this challenging give-and take reflects some great strengths of Danny's personality.  Though the technical content may be beyond your grasp, Danny himself is not.
