Re: [pa-webdev] From Jim - Meetup - about FLEX

From: Francis L.
Sent on: Sunday, September 27, 2009 7:52 AM
Jim,

I have ten years of software development experience. I have evolved with the Flash platform since it was developed in 1999 with Macromedia, and currently develop in Flex as my primary RIA platform. Our team has developed software ranging from enterprise-level business systems, to consumer-facing interactive experiences which include the functionality you're referring to, including webcam integration. One of my recent personal-turned-business projects was the development of the Hydra Framework (www.hydraframework.com / www.hydramvc.com) for Flex. Currently, I'm Chief Architect on the Flex team at andCulture.

As a point of clarification, Flex is simply an SDK that facilitates development of applications that run as Flash on the presentation-tier. Interaction with a backend can be done in Flash with or without the use of the Flex SDK, although we prefer to use Flex in almost all instances. We use .NET primarily as the service layer, interacting with Flex apps via AMF vs SOAP via WebORB (www.themidnightcoders.com/products.html)--it's a tenfold increase in performance vs SOAP. If you're using PHP, I would recommend using AMFPHP (www.amfphp.org).

Syntactically, ActionScript 3 is an ECMAScript-based language, feeling a lot like Java or JavaScript, however Flex introduces compiler metadata and the concept of MXML, which allows you to create a XML tag-based hierarchy of complex components at author-time (I think of it first as a way to pivot the object hierarchy vs. the display list hierarchy, and secondly simply as a compiler extension).

Fran,
    How experienced are you with FLEX? Could you tell a little about your technical background.
 
Have you done anything like the tokbox.com's  FLASH video recorder?
To explain further, it is a FLASH component that allows user to record video or audio right on the web page.
Facebook.com also is using a FLASH feature like that, which allow users to upload video right on the website using their computer's built-in web-cam.
 
I know this may NOT have anything to do with FLEX, but you do need FLEX to process database operation from FLASH to database.
 
let me know IF you think you can try or do something like that.

I can be a resource if you're interested in Flex.

Tina,
    Yes, flash action script can be the crucial ingredient for today's website. FLEX is something I am looking into.
What's your technical background, Tina? Is it PHP?

I've used asp.net very, veeeery briefly but would really absolutely love to get some substantial experience in that and flash action scripting.   :)

James,


 

Both Matt (assistant organizer) and myself use ASP.NET on a daily basis.  Not sure about anyone else, but we?re always happy to get more.
