Last night was the Seattle Designer Developer Interaction Group (user group) meeting. Its a user group focused on UX and the designer developer experience. We meet in downtown Bellevue. Last night Yoeun Pen was our guest speaker and a did a great presentation on Flex/Flash. Granted we were bolted out of the board room by the local construction crew and we had to play ninja and come up with a venue on the fly but by some miracle (ie, talked to hotel that we have our room booked with normally) we got to use a better room nearby (about 100feet). We had a great turn out and a great dicussion on the tools for designers vs the Flex IDE. I was pleased to learn that the designer developer story is better then some of the other technologies we looked at but not as clean as WPF/Silverlight.
Yoeun Pen covered a number of things including:
- What is Flex?
- MXML (flash version of Xaml)
- Flash/Flex 4?
- Flex SDK
- Flex Builder
- Flash vs Flex
- Embedding assets
and he did a great job contrasting Flash and flex and compairing that with Silverlight/WPF. You can download the powerpoint at:

Hope to see everyone at the next SD2IG about the latest topic related to UX.
