Flex should be as easy to learn as it is to use. And with Hello! Flex 4, it is! This illustrated tutorial builds your know-how from the first Hello World example up to a practitioner level using an entertaining style that makes learning a breeze. You'll learn to make easy-to-use interfaces, eye-catching animations, and powerful data-driven features.
Hello! Flex 4 progresses through 26 self-contained examples selected so you can progressively master Flex. They vary from small one-page apps, to a 3D rotating haiku, to a Connect Four-like game. And in the last chapter you'll learn to build a full Flex application called SocialStalkr'a mashup that lets you follow your friends by showing their tweets on a Yahoo map.
Whether you're a weekend web developer or you want big things from Flex, this book is a great place to start.
