360|Flex Indy!, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
TOPIC: PureMVC Hands-On Creating “Your First Project”
TARGET FORMAT (Duration):Â Conference Presentation Hands On (3 Hour),
AGENDA:Â Microarchitectures are groups of design patterns prepared to work together in concert. PureMVC represents a leading alternative to the well-known Cairngorm framework. PureMVC is a light framework for creating applications based on the class Model-View-Controller meta designpattern. It has a very narrow goal, to provide design patterns AND development patterns to help you separate your programming into three distinct areas; data, user interface, and the application logic. It is approachable and powerful with minimal tedium and repetition in development.
In this beginner session we’ll see how to setup your first PureMVC based on a proven project template.Â We’ll lay down the groundwork and add new features to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the framework.
While the examples shown will be specific to Adobe Flex 3 for deployment to the browser, this session is equally relevant for application developers of other technologies including Adobe Flex 3 for Adobe AIR desktop deployment.
AUDIENCE: Intermediate to advanced Adobe Flash CS4 and Adobe Flex 3 developers with equivalent ActionScript 3.0 knowledge.
LAPTOP REQUIREMENT FOR ATTENDEES: [Strongly Recommended]
