I’ll be speaking at this year’s Adobe MAX Conference in Los Angeles from Oct 4-7 on the topic “Moving from Flex 3 to Flex 4”. Here is the official description on the catalog:
“Learn about the new features in Flex 4 from the perspective of someone who has been doing Flex 3 development. We’ll discuss changes in MXML, states, effects, and CSS, as well as the new component model. This session is a must for developers who know Flex 3 and want to understand the best way to move forward with Flex.”
I’m not sure who came up with this description, but, I don’t think its that accurate saying that this is from the perspective of someone who has been doing Flex 3 development. It should probably say, “from someone who has been testing the Flex framework since Flex 1.5”. But, oh well… The talk will be on Monday, Oct 5 at 11:30 AM and Wed, Oct. 7 at 11:00 AM. I hope to touch on all of the topics that Flex 3 developers may find challenging when moving to our next version of Flex including the new namespaces, set of components, skinning architecture, layouts and states. If you have a particular topic that you want me to address, let me know. I’ll see you at MAX!
