Subject RE: Login Example for Apache Flex (was: [Website] Learning content)
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 19:01:59 GMT
As a newbie, I think a good discussion of Flex would include the following:
custom components, suggested folder structure, event bubbling, setting event
listeners, removing event listeners, item renderers and maybe even item
renderers for mobile (I think they are suggested to be actionscript only).

Right.  The only framework we need to talk about is the Flex framework.
 Examples for integrating it with other microarchitectures can be taken care
of those respective projects.  By talking about third-party
microarchitectures we would seem like we prefer any particular one(s)  Our
examples should talk in terms of just ActionScript and MXML.  You can
implement MVC in Flex without having to use any other framework.
