I never really gave much attention to Flex. Mostly because it’s not beautiful enough in the sense that now the design of the website is so important that the platform you end up doing it on has to be very flexible to accommodate it. It’s kinda ironic to say, but I don’t find Flex that much flexible, design-wise.
But now I have an idea for a rich internet application, so I said to myself, why not try Flex, this application needs more usability than design. Well it isn’t as easy as it sounds. Flex is a whole new paradigm from Flash even if they share ActionScript 3. I’m kinda lost here and I don’t know where to start to get my application going. I guess I’ll have no choice but to buy the book. That’s what I’ll do right now.
