"James!" they say, "you've been dying to play with Flex and Air. Make us an application to accompany our E-Newsletter!" How could I refuse?
"You have until friday."
So that's what I've been doing.
I have unfortunately, no previous experience with Flex, Air or even ActionScript 3, so this is proving to be interesting. Marketing has settled on producing an RSS reader - stay tuned and I'll let you know how things turn out in couple o' days.
