Apache Flex® is going strong, with an active community and numerous updates.
However, Flex is still tightly integrated with Adobe's Flash Platform.
Are you worried about future opportunities building applications on the Flash Platform?
Do you want to know how to apply your Flex development skills to them HTML5 ecosystem?
Do you need a place to start?
This course documents my experiences learning about HTML and AngularJS. First, I build an application using Flex. Then I build the same application using AngularJS. This course is designed to help you quickly become an AngularJS expert.
Jeffry has done amazing work writing this set of books. Apache Flex is a great technology, but as developers we have to move forward with new demanding technologies. In his books Jeffry helps us take the steps needed to be up to date with the modern tools needed to create great apps.
I'm Jeffry Houser and I am a Technical Entrepreneur who likes to do cool things and share them with other people.
I was the brains behind Flextras, a set of UI Components for Flex Developers. I produced The Flex Show, a podcast educating Flex Developers about Flex Development. I am also one of the initial members of the Apache Flex project management committee, as well as an Adobe Community Professional. If you asked a Flex question on StackOverflow, there is a good chance I gave you an answer.
I've written three technical books for Osborne McGrawHill, hundreds of articles, produced dozens of podcasts, and have spoken at conferences all throughout the US. I'm happy to be directing my educational efforts back to the written word.
Many tutorials on AngularJS exist, but they fall short from providing real world business solutions as are provided in "Life After Flex". Utilizing Jeff's straight forward explanations, I was able to drastically cut the development time to half of what it would have taken with other frameworks we have used for previous applications (YUI, jQuery).
Life After Flex is a must read for any Flex developer looking to keep relevant in today's web development landscape. With well written explanations, code samples and video walk throughs, Jeffry helps Flex developers make the transition to AngularJS quickly.
This book helped me understand many key concepts used in in development of an enterprise class user Interface. The step by step approach provided a good simulation of a real project where you are continuously learning and redesigning your application while delivering continuous value to your customer.
