Creating a Flex application using the TurboGears framework
In this screen capture video tutorial, Bruce Eckel and James Ward pair up to create an Adobe Flex application using the TurboGears framework. Follow along as these experts show you how to put it all together. About the authors Bruce Eckel is the author of numerous books and articles about computer programming. He gives frequent lectures and seminars for computer programmers, and was a founding member of the ANSI/ISO C++ standard committee. His best known works are Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++, aimed at programmers with little object-oriented programming experience. Most reviewers consider these books to be better written and more pedagogic than most introductory texts on Java or C++. He has since made both books available for all to download freely. However, his recent book, Thinking in Java, Fourth Edition, is no longer available in a free, electronic form. James Ward is a technical evangelist for Flex at Adobe. He enjoys programming as much as he loves climbing mountains because it provides endless new discoveries, elegant workarounds, summits, and valleys. His climbing adventures taken him many places. Likewise, technology has brought him many adventures, including Pascal and Assembly back in the early 1990s; Perl, HTML, and JavaScript in the mid 1990s; and Java and its many frameworks beginning in the late 1990s. Today he primarily uses Flex to build beautiful front ends for Java-based back ends. Prior to joining Adobe, James built a rich marketing and customer service portal for Pillar Data Systems.
