The course culminates in the development of a complete application, integrated with a PHP application server and a MySQL database. Exercise files accompany the course.
Hi! My name is David Gassner. I'd like to welcome you to Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4 Essential Training. Adobe Systems has been working on this critical upgrade to the Flex development platform for about two years. There are plenty of new features in both the Software Developer's Kit and the Integrated Development Environment, Flash Builder 4. In this series, I'll show you how to build and deploy Rich Internet Applications, including how to use the MXML and ActionScript 3 programming languages, and how to use the Flex implementation of Cascading Style Sheets, and create an MXML-based component skins with the new Spark component architecture.
I'll give you a tour of the newly renamed Flash Builder 4, formerly known as Flex Builder. You'll see examples of the product's new code generation and debugging features and how to integrate Flex applications with application servers, using Flash Builder's new data-centric development tools. This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to develop Rich Internet Applications for Flash Player 10, but it also contains great information for developers who have some experience with earlier versions of Flex. I hope you find that the Flex 4 SDK and Flash Builder 4 give you all the tools you need for building dynamic applications for the web and the desktop.
