Adobe Flex is used to create programs with Actionscript 3 and MXML. It is perfect for Rich Internet Application Development and is easy to learn– especially if you already know HTML or Actionscript programming. Adobe Flex 3 is similar to Flash, but the environment uses a screens metaphor instead of timeline metaphor for development. This tutorial takes you through developing your very first interactive application in Adobe Flex. The tutorial is in two parts. This is part one of two. If you’d like to see a written version of this tutorial it’s available on LearnToProgram.TV’s web site (www.LearnToProgram.TV). Please feel free to share this tutorial with others.
