Flex: No Frameworks Required 

by Maxim Porges @ 8:42 PM | Link | Feedback (2)

I have submitted my presentation on using Flex without a framework to cf.objective() 2008. After all the buzz about Flex frameworks and the amount of interested Googlers that end up on my web site for the same topic, there's obviously sufficient interest to put this one up for the world (or at least the cf.objective() attendees) to see.

Here's my topic description. Let's hope it gets approved by the advisory committee!

Flex: No Frameworks Required
Adobe delivered Flex with an event model, a component architecture, and all the power of ActionScript. And yet, for some reason, many people feel compelled to strap a framework on top of this perfectly productive paradigm, which often just makes things more complicated than they need to be without introducing any real benefits. Join Maxim for a back-to-basics discussion on Flex application development, based on proven practices gleaned from tried-and-trusted software development techniques.

Make sure you head on over and register for this conference if you are a ColdFusion or Flex developer. While CFUNITED is a great conference, the topics at cf.objective() tend to be more on the advanced/esoteric side. Registration is $499 for the early rate, $449 for conference alumni and CFUG managers, and group discounts are available (check the conference home page for specifics on pricing).
