I mentioned flexcoders in my last post but didn’t provide a link or more information. I thought it would be helpful to list the Flex2 resources I rely on in one place as I know I struggled to find resources initially and the more places indexed in Google for people to find the better.
Point 1: Don’t use the forums at www.Adobe.com for Adobe Flex2 questions. I had 0 luck here and they are virtually silent.
This is a fairly helpful site both because it provides access to tools and utilities (like the Flex2 ANT Tasks, Flex-Ajax bridge, and lots more) and because the wiki pages associated with the various projects are very active.
flexcoders Yahoo Group
Why is Yahoo Groups being used? I don’t know, but this is probably the best place to post questions and look for answers. You’ll want to use Google to search the group though as my searches fail if I use more than 3 or 4 words (a fault of Yahoo).
flexcomponents Yahoo Group
Another good group – focused on component development.
These can often be better (when they aren’t down) than the help system built into FlexBuilder due to the comment sections for each topic article and the fact that the Livedocs team can fix corrections immediately and keep them more up to date.
Cairngorm is a solid framework for building substantial Flex2 applications. If you are working with Flex2 I highly recommend becoming familiar with it.
I have found all of the above to be quite helpful.
