Having built/architected/developed/consulted many Adobe Flex applications and
being one of the first certified Flex instructors in the world, I’ve seen a
lot of Flex applications. Some good, some bad.
But no matter how many applications or who I’m talking to, I always stress
the importance of securing proprietary information. By securing, I mean
don’t put it in your application. Unless your are encrypting your

This is scary! Say goodbye to licensing software in Flash.

for my Canadian friends.)
OT: Should I call them “tweeters” or “twits”?
Never mind, let’s talk about some of the things you can do to make the most
Just like the subject line to an email, each tweet should get to the point
very quickly. In fact, many of us read email in the same way we read tweets
(only the first 140 characters.)
Lets face it, if you’re not Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber, getting a bunch of
people interested in what you have to say doesn’t come easy. But with a
little advice on the subt... (more)
The fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) is been slung around by profiteers like
folding chairs at a WWE event. The haters are still being haters. Nothing new

The context is all wrong here. Very, very few Flex developers have shifted,
