Last night I attended the Philadelphia Flash Platform Adobe User Group meeting on Flex/Flash Large Scale Applications, presented by Arpit Mathur, Lead Software Engineer of Comcast Interactive Media. Phil Duba already did an extensive writeup on the meeting so I won't do that here. I will say I left the meeting wanting to do some Flash development!
At one point in my career I was deep into Flash and AS2 development, building a Breeze like presentation application on top of Flash Communication Server. In fact it was my work with ActionScript that really got me interested in OO development. (Robert Penner's Programming Macromedia Flash MX definitely had a big influenced on me at the time.) Hearing all the talk about AS3 got me thinking about how much fun Flash development can be. I'm hoping I get a chance to play with ActionScript again sometime in near future. Who knows, if I ever try to pick up Flex as I've been threatening to do for the past several months, it may happen.
