Subject Re: Webinar: Moving from Adobe Flex to HTML5 and Sencha
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2012 11:23:19 GMT
Hi Ted, thanks for the clarification.
You know that the Flex community has suffered a lot in the last months and
the ones who make a living of it are very sensitive to unsubstantiated
argumentation.
Looking forward to attend to this webminar and see how the transition is
approached.

Thanks
