Wait list for Flex, Apollo at Massive 2007

I just heard from Lindsay Smith today that the 3 hour course I am teaching on Wed. March 28 at Massive has not only sold out with 140 registered attendees, but there are over 350 on the wait list. 360Flex also sold out as have other events where Apollo and Flex are happening.

This trend is worth noting. At the recent Vancouver Flash Users Group meeting I realized there aren't really any unemployed Flash gurus in the area. There are tons of jobs being posted on various sites for Flex and I am sure Apollo is going to be the same.

The course outline is as follows:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Flex and Flex Builder
    • Simple application using online compiler (Build Flex Application)
  • Module 2: Installing Flex Builder
    • Hands on Walk through
  • Module 3: First Hands on Experience
    • HelloWorld (Build hands on application)
  • Module 4: Flex in more depth
    • Flash Chart from Data binding (S51: Build hands on application)
    • Flex Slider Control data capture (S53: Build hands on application)
    • Data binding (S55: Build hands on application)
    • Using the tag to code Actionscript behaviors (S57: Build hands on application)
  • Module 5: Working with XML using Flex Builder
  • Module 6: Flex and AJAX
  • Module 7: Apollo
    • Hands on (Build Stand alone Browser)
I'll post the modules here is there is interest.



  1. Hi Duane,

    Definitely there is interest here whatever you could share on your blog. I am relatively experience in Flex (made a fairly complex piece of application over 6 months with self-taught). I am wondering does the focus be more of the beginner type of thing? I am also getting myself ramp up on Apollo right now, btw, both are very very cool and good to have an expert in the area.

  2. Take a look at the job trend for Flex that I posted on my blog!
