Flex and AIR books abound!

One of the benefits of being a public-facing Flex team member is that publishers and authors send me copies of their books. It’s pretty cool how many Flex and AIR related books have been coming out recently. To name a few delivered to me recently:

Beginning AIR by Rich Tretola
Flex 3 Training from the Source by Jeff Tapper, Michael Labriola, Matt Boles, and James Talbot
Flex Solutions by Marco Casario

Publishers like O’Reilly, Friends of Ed, and WROX are really stepping up and it’s great to see. You can see a comprehensive list of Flex books over at But make sure to check out your favorite bookseller directly since there are a ton on AIR coming out as well!

More testing support for Flex from Borland

The number of vendors supporting Flex for testing continues to grow. Borland today is releasing SilkTest 2008 which can perform functional testing for Flex apps and SilkPerformer 2008 which can do load testing with AMF.

Good news for everyone!
