Subject Login Example for Apache Flex (was: [Website] Learning content)
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 10:41:22 GMT
@Om ... in regards to code examples, I have already added Apache Flex
code examples to my Login Example [1]. Sure, the Login Example is
not a fancy app, but, it shows Flex newbies how they could structure
the Flex code with the MVC pattern. I am not sure if this code would
be of interest to the Apache Flex codebase because these code example
rely on Microarchitectures like Cairngorm 3, Mate, Robotlegs, Parsley,
Spring AS and Swiz. As you probably have noticed, after the anxiety
and depression phase of the Flex market in 2012, the development of
these Microarchitectures has mostly been stopped, and, the founders of
Parsley and Swiz have left the Flex market. This brings the Login Example
into the need to change, but, for the moment, it is not clear to me into
which
direction. I also would like to add that, for Flex newbies, I wouldn't
suggest
any Apache Flex newbie to start building a Flex application without a
Microarchitecture ... Reasons IMHO: 1) Shorter development time,
2) Less bad coding practises 3) Better structured modular code.

So ... what do you think? Would it be of interest for you put the
Login Example into the Apache Flex codebase? Do you have any
recommendations for Flex newbies how they should build Flex apps?
How should Flex newbies build Flex apps without the use of existing
Microarchitectures?

Thank you ...
