16 November 2009 - PHP Socket Server, Flex XMLSocket w/ Reflection
This was the result of a little playing with XMLSocket along with PHP to create a multi-client socket server for Flex to interact with. Initially I only wanted to test the simplicity of Flex’s ability to make simple socket connections and pass data, however one can easily see how much fun you could have here. […]

24 June 2009 - Eclipse w/ Flex Builder Plugin, Flash Builder 4, Coda, etc
For me, an average day of development routinely includes as many as a half-a-dozen languages and a good number of development environments. Several times within the last week or so I’ve been asked what I use for the majority of my development and if I have any secret tips on applications that aid in my […]

05 June 2009 - Flex 4 state syntax example usage
Raise your hand if you were as frustrated as I when it came to Flex 3 and state management. Simple or basic application states were of no real concern, but as states grew and became more and more complicated, managing and manipulating these states became a tedious and even just plain silly task. Flex 4 […]
31 May 2009 - Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst Beta’s
This evening, Adobe made available public beta’s of Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst. Pretty exciting news no doubt, and as you can see I have already allocated my portion of Adobe Labs bandwidth for the next half-hour. Now I need to find some time in my already overloaded schedule to do some playing work with […]
18 May 2009 - Replace the ugly Eclipse icon with the Flex Builder icon
I can’t imagine I am alone on this one, but I absolutely cannot stand the Eclipse icon. Whenever possible, that horrific purple monstrosity sitting in my OS X dock gets kicked to the curb and replaced by the much more handsome Flex Builder icon. Soon it will be replaced with the Flash Builder icon. 😉 For those […]
17 May 2009 - Flex Builder 4 (“Gumbo”) to be named Flash Builder
For those who have not yet heard the news, Flash Builder is in fact the new name for what would have been Flex Builder 4 (“Gumbo”). For those of you who were already aware of this name change, this is a little of my opinion on the matter. This is not surprisingly quite a hot […]
