Flashing Flex

As Flex/AIR becomes increasingly popular, its becoming more important for applications to look and feel less like the default produced by the framework.

The ability to implement custom designs and transitions is an ever growing request by clients, and knowing the best approach to achieve the desired result is key.

This session will take a look at the various ways this can be achieved providing information on styling, skinning, preloading, and transitions.

Flex is Flash. Release the inner devigner!
