Description

HIGHLIGHT

A fast-paced, hands-on tutorial that both teaches and entertains readers as they

learn Flex 4 while building a complete application.

DESCRIPTION

Flex 4 is an open-source tool that allows developers to easily add life to web

applications with dynamic user features, colorful transitions, and eye-catching

animations. Flex also provides powerful data handling for industrial-strength

applications.

We think it should be just as much fun to learn Flex as it is to use it. And we

know that fun learning gets better results. Hello! Flex 4 demonstrates how to get

started without getting bogged down in technical detail or academic edge cases.

In this book, User Friendly cartoon characters offer commentary and snide side

comments, as the book moves quickly from Hello World into practical techniques.

Each one is illustrated with a hands-on example. Along the way, readers

will build a unique Flex application that mashes Yahoo Maps with Twitter

to keep track of friends.

KEY POINTS

• Demonstrates a complete application built over the course of the book

• Entertaining style with User Friendly graphics

• Accessible to HTML or web developers without programming experience
