Apache Flex is an open source framework for easily building applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.

In this talk I'll give a brief history of Apache Flex, cover the main features of Apache Flex including recent releases, it's UI XML markup language, component hierarchy, binding, event bubbling, skinning and other major features of the framework.

I'll show a simple Flex application and how easy it is to make MVC architecture web browser application and convert with few simple modifications from a web browser based application to one that runs on the desktop and in a mobile device.

Finally I look at some of the other more recent directions the project is evolving in with FlaconJX a ActionScript to JavaScript cross compiler, FlexJS a new JavaScript based framework and ant for Air an utility for making cross platform user friendly installers from ant scripts.
