Flash Brighton – Big Day Out

Tomorrow is the day. For those of you who have been in a coma for a few weeks Saturday sees Flash Brighton’s inaugural “Big Day Out”. Unfortunately if you have only just heard about it you’ll have to wait until the next one as it is completely sold out. That said, I’m really stoked to be involved and I’m sure this will be the first of many (and perhaps inspire other community driven groups to go and organize their own).

The whole thing kicks off at 12:30 with coffee and registration, then the keynote with Andrew Shorten (fingers crossed he’ll do it in his “Holmes” costume). I have the luxury of going on quite early (14:45 – 15:45) after Andrew. I’ve decided to present an overview of Flex Builder, the Flex framework and provide some productivity and development tips on bending Flex Builder to your will. Below is a synopsis of my talk.

The Flex framework can appear slightly at odds for those approaching it from a more creative background. While it shares the same lineage as Flash the process by which you create and develop within Flex may initially appear difficult to grasp. In this session Mike will gently ease you into what the Flex framework actually is as well as giving an overview of the Flex Builder IDE, warts and all.
