Flex, .NET and insight
I just discovered Graeme Harker’s Flex.NET blog (via Jesse Warden) and I must say I am impressed. His article concerning marketing Flex to developers is dead on, and I really hope Adobe listens to some of his suggestions.
As someone who has successfully convinced their .NET development shop employer to adopt Flex, I can attest to the fact that Adobe’s insistence on literally ignoring the .NET community was one of the hurdles I had to overcome. As a developer that learned Flex in the context of a .NET environment, I can tell you that the lack of tutorials using anything but FDS was a real disappointment and a significant hindrance. If I were a .NET developer investigating Flex, rather than a Flash developer doing so, I probably would have given up thinking that Flex is intended as a front-end for Java stacks. At the very least put some Web Service tutorials out there!
Anyhow, this post was intended to point you to Graeme Harker. He seems to know his stuff and I look forward to working my way through his past articles.
