Greetings from 360 Flex

Editor's note: Greetings from 360 Flex was originally posted on the Yahoo! Flash (R) Blog, which features news and articles on Yahoo! Flash components and libraries.


The Flash Platform team is hanging out at 360 Flex. On Sunday we had a Yahoo! API hands-on workshop showing how to use some of our most popular components such as ActionScript 3 Maps and the Flex AutoCompleteManager. A few lucky folks won a copy of the beginner’s Flex book Learning Flex 3 by yours truly. For those of you who missed the workshop, we’ll be posting a screencast of that session tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

Along those lines, there’s something new this year for those of you who couldn’t attend (or who’d like to review your favorite sessions). The conference is posting videos of the sessions that you can preview and purchase, and over at Ted Patrick’s blog you can view the sessions for free, and in HD, using the Adobe Media Player.

We’re also hosting an API contest in conjunction with OpenFlux. The winner will receive a game console and other goodies, so show us what you got.

As for me, I just enjoyed a great session on Flex with Rails and RubyAMF by Tony Hillerson, and now I’m attending Josh Tynjala’s Polishing Components for the Masses session. I’d better stop writing and pay attention…I could learn something.
