Welcome to my home for occasional thoughts on Flex. I'm Brian Deitte, and after working on application servers for five years, I thought it was time for deitte.com to be more than an email address.
I've been working on Allaire/Macromedia servers for quite awhile- two years on JRun and its servlet engine, a year tuning ColdFusion and CFCs, and nearly two years working on Flex and RemoteObject, the proxy, compc, and now the compiler in general.
I can't talk about what I've been doing lately, the great amount of work being done for 2.0, but I do have a few things I'd still like to share about Flex 1.x if I can find the time- information on a faster mxmlc that should appear shortly, an apologia for the proxy, and some thoughts on developing on unsupported platforms.
I've already read so many interesting things on Flex in blogland- Matt's early, where-the-hell-does-he-find-the-time posts, the neat IFRAME trick from Christophe, Scott's posts on CF and Flex, the ideas for building better RIAs from Sho, and of course much from the hard-drinking, hard-working folks at iteration::two. I can't promise anything like the above, but I should bring a few new Flex ideas into the mix. And yes this domain still serves its original purpose, as a permanent email home for me- you can contact me at brian (at deitte.com).
