Adobe TV surprised me today by posting my Pulse demo much sooner than I thought they would. Four videos posted in just over a week. I feel like Ben Affleck, where everyone will probably get sick of me when I'm just getting started. Except that Ben has a way bigger jaw and whiter teeth. And I bet he can't program graphics applications. This demo is the first in a series of "Filthy Rich Client" applications, where I look at what it would take to enable specific graphical or animated effects on the Flex platform. The Pulse demo in particular is a Flex take on an application originally written in Java by Romain Guy. The only problem is that I wasn't quite ready to post the source (just have to go through it and make sure it's ready for leaving the nest: nicely commented, teeth brushed, lunch packed...). So watch the video for now and check back here soon if you're interested in seeing the source code and application. By the way, this kind of content is also being posted on the Flex Developer Center, so you might also put that site on your list of Flex learning bookmarks.
