D-Flex December Wrap-up
Barring a few technical difficulties this December D-Flex meeting was an excellent culmination of the first year of D-Flex. In this meeting we covered the PureMVC framework as we get closer to our group’s first application D-Flix, a Flex based Netflix application, along with meeting planning for our next year.
Paul Taylor presented at this month’s D-Flex meeting showing how to set up a Flex Application using the PureMVC framework. Though this framework can be daunting to new users, Paul used some simple charts and graphs to explain how the PureMVC works. Below are some links to the resources Flex brought to D-Flex.
Future Meeting Planning
As a group we discussed some of the points that we would like to hit as a group over the year. Some of the key points include:
- 15 min Flex “Tips and Tricks” section to start each meeting.
