Adobe Labs has released Flex Component Kit for Flash CS3, this will allow you to crate animated componnet in flash and use it in Flex as a Flex component.

This is good Bridge beetween flash and flex this will help a lot in order to create cool custom componet for Flex in flash.
I see here an opportunity to convert existing flash custom comonents for flex by using Flex Component Kit .

Flex 3 – Talks are on

logo

Flex 3 ??????????

Yes, Flex 3 talks are on.

Ted Patrick has posted Flex 3 – The most important feature! today morning. According to the post Flex 3 will be targeted on Flash Player 9 which is very smart strategy of adobe to come out with the next release by that time expected flash player 9 penetration will be 90% (currently it is 60% according to Aral Balkan’s FlashForward Macworld Keynote).

Ted Patrick will give a demo on some Flex 3.0 features at the 360Flex keynote.

In my opinion Flash Player 9 must have been developed after putting the lot of thought as Flex 3, 4, 5 releases will be targeting Flash Player 9 and may be currently Flash Player 9 is having all (hidden) capabilities which are targeted for Flex 3, 4, 5.

Well, I am very excited to see more features of Flex 3 but have to wait till 360Flex keynote.

[OT] Footprints

One day a man having conversation with god when his whole life flashed before his eyes as a series of footsteps on the sands of time. He saw that there were two pairs of footprints, but during the most difficult periods of his life there were only one set of footprints. He asked god “You said you will be with me throughout this journey, but why have you deserted me during the most critical times of my life??” To which god answered “Son, I did not desert you, I was always with you…you see only one set of footprints because during those difficult times in your life, I was carrying you”

Another day a man was having a similar conversation with his Project Manager (PM) when his whole project flashed before his eyes as a series of footsteps on the sands of time. He saw that there were two pairs of footprints, but during the most difficult times in the project there were only one set of footprints. he asked his PM, “You said you will be with me throughout the project, but why have you deserted me during the most critical times of the project??” to which his PM answered, “Son, I did not desert you, I was always with you… you see only one set of footprints because during those difficult times I was “sitting on your head!!!”
