Subject RE: Randori framework [was Re: What to expect from FalconJS]
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2012 19:50:45 GMT
>What I don't get is, Mike said all these other companies that had compiler engineers are
not here, meaning they are somewhere else. So Mike has put his time working with C# and a
cross compiler /JS framework.

Actually, I found a really good cross-compiler from C# to JS that was extensible. So, instead
of inventing the wheel to do a POC, I used something off the shelf. If FalconJS was here and
extensible, I would have built it on top of that first.

>Mike Does this have anything to do with this project? Or are you planning on heading in
your own direction with the Randori framework?

I think there are some borders and it will really depend on this group and what we all want
to do. Randori isn’t really just about C#, it's more of an idea that we could do with Java/C#/AS/Whatever.
I could see Flex being a component framework that follows a strategy and exists in the space
to all a familiar development paradigm. I just don’t want to make the same mistakes that
I think we have with Flex now.

>BTW Mike, I really do agree with how you summarized the problems that are occurring today
with Javascript and the View layer.
