Well, it’s gone Friday, so where’s my new AIR app? Unfortunately, I can’t give it you yet – although its nearly ready to be unleashed, I can’t show it until the next issue of the E-Newsletter is sent out. (That’s Marketing for you.) So you’ll have to hang on for a few weeks yet.
Nevermind, eh? I certainly learnt a lot playing with Flex builder / Air / AS3, and here’s hoping that I’ll have some spare time to do a few articles on what I’ve learnt – pitfalls, theory, code snippets, that kind of thing.
One thing I realised is that your intrinsic knowledge of Flash and it’s specialised coding methods mean very little working in Flex, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s bad – Flash programming is probably a bit of a niché market in how it’s done and works, and I get the impression that the Flex approach is a lot more mainstream theory-wise, so I’m prepared to put the effort into learning to code properly.
