As you may already know Flex 1.0 is now available. There are tons of resources available on Flex and I will help you find them. I have spent most of the last few months working a lot with Flex and have really grown to love it. The excitement I felt when I started working with CF back in 1997 I am feeling all over again with Flex. The Applications you can build are truly amazing and the great thing is I don't have to be an accomplished designer to build it.
You will first want to start with http://www.macromedia.com/software/flex/ to understand what Flex is and if it fits your needs.
Next, you will want to read the articles from the Flex Developers Center. You will find everything from Building your first Flex application to Architecting Flex Applications. To keep up with all of the latest information I suggest you check out the following blogs:
You can find help at the Flex Support site as well. The Flex support team has been working hard as well publishing technotes to help solve common issues developers will run into.
You will be seeing a lot more Flex on my blog in the future. If you want to subscibe to my Flex RSS feed you can use the following URL's

Are the DevNet Subscribers going to get a free trial or do we have to buy a CD too?
I received an e-mail from Macromedia informing me that a download will be available in DevNet in the first week of April.
FYI, there is now a FelxUnit testing framework on SourceForge.
If you run a Flex or Flash application on Linux in Firefox or Mozilla you may see the application only render partially and the rest of the screen shows up gray or black. This is a known issue with the Flash Player. You can find some information on the mozilla website.<a href="http://www.serviselite.com">electrolux servisi</a>
