Although its been a hectic year, it has definitely been one of many new and interesting experiences. Some of you may know about the book I’ve spent the last 2 years working on with my esteemed colleagues: Tariq Ahmed, John C. Bland II, and Joel Hooks – titled Flex 4 In Action (Manning Press). Well, I’m very proud to say that the book was officially released today! And the nice people over at Manning Press are offering the book today at HALF PRICE, if you enter the code: dotd1110 in the promotional code box when you check out!
This is a 640-pager that includes some great content that you won’t find anywhere else, including an entire chapter dedicated to architectural design with Flex 4 that Joel Hooks and I wrote together. Since I’m really big into building enterprise-grade Flex and AIR applications, that chapter is my favorite, mainly because of the full-blown rundown on Robotlegs that Joel Hooks gives you.
Additionally, if you’ve run into difficulty understanding the difference between the component architecture from Flex 3 to Flex 4, and all of the great features you gain in terms of scalability when building Flex 4 components, then chapters 17 and 18 are for you. The very intelligent John C. Bland II also shares some of his “top secret” tricks, tips, and techniques for adding that extra “pizzazz” to your applications, while Tariq Ahmed gives you all of the necessary information that you will need to know prior to building your first Flex 4 application.
