Flex 2 Training

I”m very excited that Flex 2 was finally released, but not for the reasons you may think. I”ve been working with Flex 2 since the alpha version, so I”ve gotten very familiar with it. So much so that I upgraded my instructor certification from Flex 1.5 to Flex 2.

All you code monkeys, myself included, should take note that Flex 2 is quite different than Flex 1.x and will require some study time. Or you can attend any of the four classes:

  • Flex 2: Developing Rich Internet Client Applications
  • Flex 2: Data and Communications
  • Flex 2: Building Dashboard Applications
  • Flex 2: Designing the Visual Experienc

Flex 2: Developing Rich Internet Client Applications will primarily be for those new to Flex. Soup to nuts, how to build Flex 2 applications.

Flex 2: Data and Communications will expect you to be very familiar with Flex 2. It will focus on server components and special features.

Flex 2: Building Dashboard Applications is well… all charting.

Flex 2: Designing the Visual Experience will focus on building Flex 2 applications using the visual tools and enhancing the styles and themes. Great for designers or the rare programmer/designer.

There is also an ActionScript 3 for Flex class.
