It’s almost time for another 360|Flex conference! This conference will be held in Denver, Colorado, April 15–18, 2012. Get your tickets fast while discounts are available! It’s always a huge opportunity to learn new things and get in touch and have fun with the community.

I’ve accepted the honor of speaking at this year’s conference and will be speaking on JavaScript on Wednesday at 10:50am. As you probably know, the Adobe community has really been shaken up over the last few months. Adobe’s position on Flash and Flex has morphed and many engineers are taking a closer look at other technologies. While JavaScript holds a stigma of being a red-headed step-child from the same orphanage as ActionScript 1, many see it as the inevitable future of the web. While the language hasn’t evolved much, libraries and patterns have shaped up to help provide an environment conducive to building robust, dynamic enterprise apps. We’ll discuss these libraries and patterns, learn how they relate to Flex, and make a comfortable home away from home.

Many of the concepts will be pulled from the JavaScript architecture series I recently started. Also, while I am a software engineer at Adobe, my thoughts are my own and do not represent those of Adobe.
