Ben Stucki is an independent Flex developer and consultant with a background in standards based web development.
After a long love affair with Flash experimentation, Ben downloaded Flex and posted some of the first fluid and interactive custom Flex components to the otherwise grey-blue world of Rich Internet Applications.
Today Ben continues to post sample code through his blog at www.benstucki.net and contributes to many well known Flex projects including OpenFlux, Degrafa, FlexLib and Metaphile.
Occasionally he writes for publications or speaks at conferences because it makes him feel cool.

This isn't a Flash Component Kit walk through or a Flex skinning session. This is a sixty minute guide to turning your knowledge of the Flash Player into killer Flex know-how. Walk in as a Flash developer, walk out as a Flex pro.
