Programming Flex 2

  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups:
I've been doing a fair amount of documenting on Flash related technologies and have considered dabbling in ActionScript (if you know JavaScript, you have at least a leg up on learning ActionScript) so I thought it was time to stretch into the arena of Flex 2. I found the concept of Flex to be a bit confusing at first. After all, if Flex builds Flash applications and Flash CS3 Professional builds Flash applications, why use one over the other? Since ActionScript is the scripting language underneath both development platforms, what's the difference? Naive questions I know, but they're answered in Programming Flex 2.

Remembering Progeny

Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia. Working for the company in 2000-01 gave me my first sense of my potential and gave me a sense of self-worth at a time when I badly needed it.
