Hi... I am new to flex and am looking to learn a few things. As a project, I am looking to build a 1-on-1 video chat program. essentially I want to recreate chat roulette. This is a test project, but I intend to publish it on the web for open use and do not want it to crash because I have a couple hundred users. Even though there may be a few hundred people using it, each person will only be communicating with one other person. Since I have no budget, I cannot really afford FMS so would like it to be completely peer to peer. Can anyone point me in the right direction for creating this site and/or recommend some books for learning how to build a good scalable peer to peer app in Flex?
Also if you can give me an idea as to the complexity of such a site that would be helpful. I am new to flash but have a good amount of programming experience.
Chat roulette was build on Adobe Stratus http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/stratus/ it's in beta so there won't be any books yet but Adobe offers enough articles from which you could piece together enough information to build a chat roulette clone.
hope that helps,
