James Polanco is a web application architect and co-founder of DevelopmentArc, who focuses on the Flash Platform (Flash, AIR, Flex, etc.). He has been dabbling with Flash since the beginning, but became serious about development and research with the release of Flash MX. Over the years, James has focused primarily on ActionScript development, design patterns and component implementations which became a natural fit for Flex development and web application planning and architecture.

James has worked on, lead and planned projects such as DevelopmentArc Maque, Scion.com, Lexus.com, Toyota.com, ILM The show, Adobe Kuler, Adobe WorkflowLab and many other projects and applications for startups to Fortune 500 companies. James is the co-author of Adobe Press’ “Adobe Flash Platform from Start to Finish: Working Collaboratively Using Adobe Creative Suite 5” and co-host of the D2W Podcast.
