Tutorial

Next Generation Flash Development with Flex

Mike Chambers, Senior Product Manager for Developer Relations, Adobe

Date: Monday, March 06
Time: 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Location: Molly AB

There is clearly a resurgence in how HTML can be used to deliver application user interfaces, and we've seen terrific examples in recent months across the industry. In addition, Flash brings new capabilities that HTML doesn't currently have, and they can be used together to great benefit--in fact, Flash is architected to fit perfectly in the Web 2.0 model.

In this tutorial, you'll learn about how you can use Flash and HTML together to build rich user interfaces that will make your customers sit up and take notice. You'll learn about ActionScript, an ECMA standard language just like JavaScript. You'll also learn about the Flex Framework, and the rich set of interfaces it provides to build beautiful and powerful apps, as well as Flex Enterprise Services that provides a powerful way to manage your data. Finally, you'll see how Flex Builder puts it all together to give you a productive and efficient Eclipse-based IDE.

Throughout the tutorial, we'll take a look at some real world examples and talk about how you can implement similar features in your applications and web sites.
