Tikal Flex Course overview:

The course is intended for anyone who wishes to leverage his development skills and master not only the server side, but rich client as well.

The course will deeply cover the important aspects of Flex, and will give you a rock solid foundation to use your skills on top.

All uneducated Flex developers out there consider themselves as Flex developers, doesn't know a fraction of this course content.

It was passed to developers with 1-2 years of Flex development, who were unfamiliar with almost all of it.

You will be able to get Tikal Flex Course Topics: here in a matter of weeks!

Tikal Flex Course Preparations:

  • All topics are covered from scratch; however a very basic knowledge of Flex syntax and basic stuff (actionScript, MXML, binding) will smooth things up.

  • This can be acquired in a matter of days (2 to be exact) using this excellent basic video training offered by Adobe: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/videotraining/ (Trust me, most Flex developers are familiar with only this)

Adobe basic video training is a 5 days course:

  • Days 1-2 : important and relevant to the course

  • Days 3-4 : Not mentioned in the course, but important for later on

  • Day 5 : advanced stuff

Good Luck!
