O'Reilly Open Source 2008 Slides available
James Ward and I jointly presented a session at this year's OSCON conference in Portland. The session was titled Flex: the Open Source SDK for RIAs and it includes step by step instructions on how to download the source trunk via svn and use Apache Ant to build.
Abstract: Adobe has released the Flex SDK open source under Mozilla Public License (MPL). This includes the source to the ActionScript components from the Flex SDK, the Java source code for the compilers, the debugger, and the core libraries. Flex can run in any browser—on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and AIR. This session will introduce people to Flex, provide code samples, use cases and a roadmap.
