Folks! Man, its been awhile since I’ve posted. My bad, my bad. At least I have something fun to share!
I’ll be speaking at 2 user group meetings next week (Tuesday in San Francisco, Wednesday in San Jose) all about Flex component lifecycle. I’ll cover (briefly) the Flex 3 (Halo) component lifecycle and then dive into the Flex 4 (Spark) component lifecycle. We’ll talk about what exactly happens at startup to a Spark component – how its skin gets initialized and associated with the component, how its states are determined, etc. It will be great! In addition to slides and explanations, we’ll walk through building a sample component and introspecting the methods as we discuss them. As usual, I’ll put all the slides and code on my blog after the talk.
Not to plug my last year’s MAX talk, but next week’s presentations will all hinge on having some knowledge of the Flex 3 component lifecycle. So, if you haven’t watched that video, it might behoove you to do so 🙂
You can see the video, grab the slides and code all from my blog post here.
