Computing Thoughts
New Book: First Steps in Flex Now Available
by Bruce Eckel
December 11, 2008
James Ward (Adobe evangelist for Flex) and I have coauthored a book to rapidly bring programmers into the world of Flex. Our primary intent was to make the book small (only 140 pages), with short, pithy chapters, to lower the hurdles to learning this powerful GUI system.


The book is only available in print, and initially only from this site where you can find out more about it, see samples, and order the book.
