For more than a decade, Flash has enabled the richest content to be created and deployed on the web...
However, HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively.

I'm ok with this.

My only downside is having to learn another skill set, the upside is I get to learn a new skill set!

I have been having so many issues with Flash external callbacks and permissions with browsers, all the different ways you have to embed it, some browsers use param tags, some use the object attributes. It is just a mess.

There will be some higher level stuff that people will want to keep doing in flash until they can replicate with HTML5 but that isn't far off.
