    As a Flash Designer and non flash Developer This lecture was really a good one - i'm surprised that i understood everything including the parts with the code :) - it's not a secret that i was afraid from Flex but now i feel much more confident that i can at least have a soft start working with it. Thank you Eitan Avgil - you Completely took the fear away of me and gave me a good start.

    I think this was a great lecture.
    Professionally-wise, it was very focused to the subject and well explain.
    The presentation was well built and the presenter was extremely professional and prepared for the lecture.
    I think that the goals of the meeting were achieved, and that every one that came with no idea regarding what is flex and how and when to use it has much better idea.

    I personally had some (very little) experience with flex, and the lecture really straightened things out for for me.

    Was a great jump start for Flex beginners - and the discussion at the end raised many interesting questions.
    Thanks to all who came and made it fun, especially for those who stayed for beer later :)
    Please continue discussion about Flex at the flashoo.co.il (http://flashoo.co.il/forum/) Flex forum.
    See you on the next one - Flex 4, here we come!

    the lectre was to fast for pepole that work only on desing, and more that that it bearly contributed them, if it did at all.
    about the code side, it was too much fast, and the ability to catch things withought trying the Development envirment and playing with the code a little before the meeting was not good.
    it should be considered to go more deep into the code, but let pepole read some stuff in advance, and not just "out of the blue".
