Hands on Flex

I’ve been very busy for last 4-5 months. But I have been hacking around with many things; Emacs, Vim, Python, Bash, Flex, Silverlight etc… No I am not trying to impress anyone here. Of course I am not master of these things. :).

Adobe Flex aka Fx is a great open source tool. I happen to understand the Ajax/PHP and Curl so I can compare Flex with these.

In my opinion Flex is great. You can create a application with minimum ActionScript coding. Basic layout of a flex application is in MXML and ActionScript is used for more control just like we use HTML and JavaScript.

I have been trying the Flex charting API. I will say that they are extensive and very easy to use. Flex platform is Open Source and licensed under Mozilla Public license.

I will keep readers updated in Flex as soon as I get to something new.
