I am currently a Senior Web Developer and Instructor of technologies such as; ColdFusion, Flex, Flash, AIR, and SQL. I have been programming and teaching for over 20 years and started developing in ColdFusion and Flash back in 1999. Since the pre-release of Flex 2.0 I’ve begun to spread the “Good News” about Flex and Flex development … and now AIR. Since then, I have never looked back.
Currently I am seeking to create the perfect synergy between the various web technologies such as ColdFusion (server), Flex/Flash/AIR (client), and SQL (model).
“I’m an artist, writer, and director. The web is my canvas, the technologies I use are my tools, and the applications I create are my works of art. I’m doing what I love and love what I ‘m doing. Thank you God!”
Adobe Flex 3 contains several classes that allow Flex developers to work with local SQLite databases on AIR. In this presentation we will take an in-depth look at those classes and learn how to create, query, and interact with those databases and its data. I will show you several examples that demonstrate techniques such as:
MATE is a tag-based, event-driven framework for Flex development. Using MATE in your Flex development can help you build powerful, loosely coupled applications. During this presentation I will take a simple Flex application and show how you can perform an extreme makeover that will greatly enhance the application's architechture, allowing it to scale properly.
This presentation shows developers how to use some of the more popular web-based public data sources and open APIs in their Flex/AIR applications. In this article I will demonstrate how to create a Flex/AIR application that uses Delicious feeds to create a Twitter-like app.
