We hope you’ve had a chance to get your hands dirty with the Flex 4 and Flash Builder 4 betas. You’ve heard us talk about what’s new and what we think is cool, but now it is your chance tell us about your experience with the betas.

We’ll be having two Open Beta Meetings – one for new and beginner Flex users and the other for more advanced folks. These meetings will be an opportunity for us to gather feedback from the community. Below we’ve provided some areas in particular we’d like feedback on, however, this meeting will primarily be led by you.

We’d primarily like you to focus on the workflow and features, so if you have bugs please file these in the Flex Bug System and if your having other difficulties, please also post to the Labs forums.

Food for thought:

  • What was your biggest pain points in the Flex 4.0 beta?
  • What were the first problems that you ran into and how did you get around them?
  • How is the skinning experience overall? What are the hardest parts? How might it be improved?
  • Have you had any difficulties using both Spark and Halo components mixed in the same application? What was the combination, and what were the difficulties?
  • The Spark component set and its features are certainly not complete yet, and will not be complete when we release Flex 4.0. But is there anything missing from Spark whose absence is particularly problematic for you?
  • Have you noticed any significant performance problems? Which components or scenarios?
  • Additionally, what else do you believe is missing from Flex 4.0?
