Subject Re: Goal for Flex: Strengthening large-scale Flex applications
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2012 13:24:35 GMT
I would be glad to write it but it seems to me that people are suggesting
resources or tutorials (no matter what they are) shouldn't be apart of this
project. I disagree with that. Or I'm suggesting that we have a descendant
site that does provide these resources.

As far as the best way to design a large scale enterprise application I
would say there are recommended approaches to creating scalable apps and I
think that's what Sebastian was asking for.

We can't forget the learning curve it takes to use Flex. Many beginners are
presented with only code examples not application architecture examples.
Instead what happens is they continue to build their own frameworks or
carry on architectures from other languages into Flex.

I've gotten into many discussions about whether coding is an art or a
craft. I will not argue my opinion on that but when working in a team
environment there are a set of code principles and practices that emerge
that are expected in a production environment.

What I would say is that if an getting started article on building large
scale Flex application "as is" without other frameworks existed it would be
well read.

Actually, if there is a resource that lets people to submit articles or
blog posts who cares what they write about? The community would vote it up
or down and read it or not.
