Who's A Bright Spark Then!
In this session Mike talking walking his way through the new Spark components in Flex 4 and how they could just be the missing link between great designs and fantastic applications.
Things may break, there will be jokes, the occassional rant, talk of beer and many walks down memory lane as we go from flat to functional in 60 minutes.
So if you're a designer who wants to find out how to stop developers butchering your designs, or a developer who wants to build applications that actually look identical to the mock-ups then this is for you.
For the more analytically minded Mike will be looking at how FXG works and how to harness the new skinnable Spark classes as well as how to hack on Flash Catalyst to get the bits you need and leave the rest behind when creating interactive skins for your applications.
