I’ll be presenting on ActionScript 3, Flash Player 8.5, Flex Builder 2, and the Flex 2 Framework at this Thursday’s Atlanta Macromedia User’s Group. I won’t be covering Flex 2 Enterprise Services, but will briefly touch on Blaze (Flash 9). If you don’t know what Flex 2 is, check out Christian Cantrell’s excellent breakdown.
A quick summary, Flex 2 is a collection of technologies to empower developers to create Rich Internet Applications utilizing the rich media & collaborative capabilities of the Flash Platform for both Enterprise and smaller scale developers. If you are a backend developer (PHP, Java, .NET, ColdFusion, etc.), Flex 2 is the web front-end technology for you. While Flex isn’t necessarely advertised as the migration path for existing Flash Developers, it is by me.
Come witness a glimpse of the future of RIA development.
