Flex for Java Programmers

One day Chris Richardson, in need of a rich UI and , deeply frustrated with Javascript and CSS, sat on his couch and downloaded Flex. To make a long story short, several hours later, he had a running first demo app that was quite a bit more than a hello world. Encouraged by this, Chris moved forward and in little time, developed a rich UI for his cloud products.

Come here Chris talk about how you can get started and hear his tips to getting started. And learn about the reality of bringing simple, but rich Flex UIs into your Java service.
