My first post here. I'll just confess here and now that I'm
not very familiar with code. The little that I'm familiar with is
from Flash and Dreamweaver. I've never hand coded. I rely on the
software to generate it.
For what it's worth, I have worked on the design side for
I have two questions.
Is is possible to learn the basics of Flex using only design
What/Where would be the best place to learn Flex given my
limited programming experience.
I would say that its almost immpossible to learn the basics
of flex using design mode only. The design mode really only lets
you "layout" flex elements and set their properties. To make things
actually work with one another you will need to get your hands
dirty with code.
I started learning flex by following the quickstart tutorials
that come with the flex builder IDE. They were pretty good at
getting my feet wet, I also picked up "Action Script 3.0 Cookbook"
just to use as a reference for some of the more common things you
might do with flex. I don't really use it much anymore but it
helped in the beginning.
