Flex primer for Flash users

Flex primer for Flash users

Flex, baby, flex baby one, two.

So what’s this Flex thing Adobe keeps talking about? Well, we found out real fast when a prominent client announced their Rich Media was going to be based on Flex. So we made a mad scramble to find a developer who was versed in this new framework.

Some of you may remember that 3 0r 4 years ago I predicted Adobe InDesign would take over Quark. I adopted InDesign 2.0 and never went back.
There is a battle brewing. CSS based AJAX enabled pages with an ASP.net 2.0 framework (LAMP and ROR are also good alternatives) and Rich Media applications built on Flash/Flex.

I’m making a similar prediction now. Adobe has been Flexing it’s own muscles making this application more robust and integrated with Flash. I’m convinced Flex is going to be a major player in the industry within a year. Developers, you better get up-to-speed on this one.
