im going to get into my curriculum a bit so that i can remind myself what i wanted to do, from the beginning, and see how that changes over time.
a. read Programming Flex by Chafic Kazoun and Joey Lott
b. take the first set of lessons on actionscript from lynda.com
a. continue reading and re-reading the book above
b. wrap up on actionscript videos from lynda.com (easily the hardest part for me to pickup, being that i was more of a designer forever, and not a programmer in the oop sense of programming. im more of a coldfusion developer who can design as well)
a. Flex 2: Developing Rich Client Applications class at figleaf this is a two day class
that delves into the basics of flex development
b. build out my first little application. i want to make a simple CRUD system that i will eventually take into my day job (www.navtrak.net) and implement that as part of an effort to upgrade some backend systems.
a. continue reading and going over course material and working lots and lots of actionscript classes to become components for that backend app.
a. christmas :) forget geek stuff for a week
a. more work on backend components and loads of interface work. mxml i think will be the easy part for me, i think the bane of my flex existence will be actionscript.
a. another two day class @ figleaf, this time Flex 2: Dashboard Applications
b. back to back! thats right, another class at figleaf the same week: Flex 2: Programming the Visual Experience
this is good for now... this will keep me plenty busy for some time.
i hope to have examples of what im doing up here shortly. although most of the code ive done so far is too tiny to really get into it :)
