Adobe Flex is a framework for the efficient development of rich web applications using an open source application framework. Flex allows for the streamlined development of applications that can be deployed consistently across all major browsers, desktops and devices.
Flex provides a modern, standards-based language that has been designed specifically with developers in mind, utilising common design patterns that developers from a multitude of backgrounds will be able to understand. Flex produces .swf files, as with Adobe Flash, but as it has been built specifically for developers, it is a far more efficient and streamlined tool for creating Flash .swf files.
Our training courses can provide a wide range of skills for building web applications with Flex and related utilities such as Flash Builder and Adobe AIR. Training may include connecting a Flex front end to dynamic data using Flex Data Services, communicating with a Java backend, how to manipulate and format data returned from the backend, how to create drag-and-drop user interfaces, how to embed fonts and how to implement custom application look-and-feel.
If you're a developer planning on using Adobe Flex to create rich Internet applications (RIA) then our wide range of courses will be able to provide you with the tools you need.
Training is available on Flex 3 and 4. Click on the individual course titles to view training course content, dates, locations and prices. These courses are also available to be delivered onsite at your location.
