Last night was the first Ottawa Flex user group meeting and the Flex 3 road tour night, and I have to say a user group meeting in Ottawa was long overdue. I want to thank Mike Potter from Adobe and Peter McKinnon for putting on the event. At Fuel we don’t do a lot of Flex or AIR work, but our Flash team went out just to be social and learn about what’s coming up. I am hoping that we can get more people out to the next event, which sounds like it’s going to be February 25th. There was also talk about making it a Flex/Flash user group as well in hopes of getting more people out to the events. Because at the end of the day Flex and Flash developers are all face with the same problems. I really want to make this user group a success again. So if you leave in Ottawa and are interested in coming out please do. You can keep up to date on what’s going on the Ottawa Flex website, and remember that the night doesn’t end at the event. There is always an after event drink or two.
I finally got my first Apollo App to a point where I want to share it. It was also my first Flex project as well so the code might not be all that great or sloppy. There is a link at the end of the post to download the source as well. If you see that I am doing something that I shouldn’t be doing, by all means let me know. I know there are a couple of hacks in there to fix some weird things that I encountered. Overall my experience developing for Apollo was pretty good. I am looking forward to Apollo growing up and becoming a full release.
