can anybody recommend some resources for examples on using some of the flashbuilder/flex tags.
as a cold fusion web developer, there are tons of resources with snippets or simple examples on using most the cold fusion tags and functions.
liveedocs.adobe.com is a great reference guide but sometimes I need examples and snippets ; reference material is not very useful for learning.
is there or will there be something similar with flex/flashbuilder?
I assume you're asking specifically about Flex4 examples? There are tons of resources (Adobe and non-Adobe) for pre-Flex 4 coding, so I won't go into those. For some examples and info on Flex 4, you might check out the Adobe devnet site - we're recently posted some articles talking about various aspects of Flex 4, with sprinklings of code and demos to help illustrate the points:
Also, there were a few talks at a Flashcamp event a couple of weeks ago - it might be worth checking out the videos that were posted:
(more about the event and links to some of the slides here: http://www.flashcamp.org/)
You can also follow some of the blogs out there that are talking about Flex 4. A few of us on the SDK team have blogs, but there are also non-Adobe bloggers out there talking about it and posting code and examples.
Hope that helps.
