Flex your cross platform muscle

We’ve repeatedly said that the best developers learn different technologies and different platforms. I think this is especially true in the RIA space, where your customers may be using a different device, and different platform than you typically use. I believe that if you are building RIA applications, it will be important for you to have some knowledge of both Silverlight and Adobe Flex. 

To that end, SRT Solutions is hosting Adobe Evangelist James Ward for a 3 day Flex Jam. Learn more, and Signup here: http://www.srtsolutions.com/flex-training

If you’re primary focus is Flex, James will help you learn more about that platform in short order. If your primary platform is Silverlight, you’ll learn some of the idioms employed by the other major RIA platform. That knowledge will make you a better Silverlight developer: you’ll learn some techniques that you can use in Silverlight, even though they are more natural in Flex.
