In this section you will learn to build a Flex application. You will discover that Macromedia Flex Markup Language (MXML) is a great markup language to quickly create a working application. The application will load data from RSS and will display information accordingly. To get to this result, we need some theory about the Flex framework and to get acquainted with the Flash Builder IDE. Are you ready?
Design and create functional applications that interact with remote data sources. You get a thorough introduction to the latest Flash Builder tools learning how you can use the built-in wizards, MXML or pure ActionScript 3 to build information-rich applications for the browser or AIR applications. Hand's on tutorials guide you through each iteration including building user interaction, charting, incorporating audio and video, customizing the UI; and a code repository provides re-usable code that you can modify and deploy in your own applications.
