FlexJS: Flex for JavaScript

Flex's claim to fame is high developer productivity in developing applications for the web, desktop and mobile.  The Flex SDK currently has a dependency on the Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR runtimes.  As new runtime environments that don't support Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR proliferate, folks have become concerned about whether to continue to use Flex or not.  This presentation will include an overview, demonstration, and details of FlexJS, a next-generation Flex SDK designed to cross-compile to HTML/JS/CSS so it can run natively in the browser, as well as on mobile devices via Apache Cordova, but allow you to use much of your existing source code and knowledge of the programming languages and workflows, and even the IDEs.
