My name is Anand Joshi and I work at Calsoft Labs. We are Adobe’s scaling partner and primarily work with with Flash technology in mobile, consumer and digital home devices. Over the years, we’ve ported Flash and developed applications on a wide range of devices such as mobile phones, set-top boxes, mp3 players, digital signage boxes, hand-held devices, kiosks, DTVs etc. that were not directly addressed by Adobe. We worked with numerous operating systems (Android, Linux, Windows CE/Mobile, Nucleus, ThreadX) and platforms (TI, Freescale, Marvell, Intel, AMD, Sigma). This widespread exposure has given us a unique perspective on the market and technology and this blog is an attempt to capture that.
I started this blog during Flash 7/Flash Lite 2 days as Flash technology was coming off age and there was widespread interest in OEMs wanting to use Flash on embedded devices. Flash has evolved since and continues to evolve with Adobe’s latest announcement to end Flash on mobile devices. At present, the focus of this blog is on Flash, AIR, HTML5 and other multimedia technology based on my day-to-day experience. If you need additional specific information, you can always contact me via email at anand at joshimail dot net.

PS. That was written a long time ago. As of 2014, I am not working for Calsoft Labs and looking for new opportunities. If anyone is looking for energetic, technology focused business development, sales or marketing person, by all means let me know. I am based in Silicon Valley.
