Test Out The New Flex.org

We’ve been developing a new community oriented version of Flex.org, and I’d like to get your feedback on it. Head to flex.org/beta to see the new site in action – it aggregates a number of Flex oriented RSS feeds into one listing for you, including Flex jobs from SearchCoders.com and Dice.com, articles from Digg.com and DZone, examples from FlexExamples.com, along with a listing of Flex user groups and consulting companies, and Flex related events.

Post your comments about the new site in this blog, keeping in mind that the site is still in beta, and we’re working out some of the problems with information display.

    Are you guys thinking of adding a flex forum?, the flexcoder mailing list gets messy and the adobe ones aren’t as fast as forums built on vBulletin or similar.cheers[No we aren’t going to add a Flex forum to the site. The Adobe team is working on new software for the online forums – we will continue to use the Adobe site for forums moving forward. – Mike]

    can the consultant grid be done using flex rather than html?[It can. What advantages do you think that would have? – Mike]
