I’m diving into the world of Flash. Particularly Flash’s XML capabilities and it’s new UI Components.
I did some reading about the future of the Web and Web Applications. And I kept reading about how HTML is simply not powerful enough, and constant server-side program calling is too expensive. It makes sense, we need something slick and streamlined. Something that can work with the server and keep the client-side interface snappy and responsive.
Flash seems to be a popular, and possibly valid solution.
I’m attempting to build my site management system using Flash. I know this doesn’t fit into my original concept of only using open source technology, but, upon seeing Flash’s capabilities I’ve decided to break my design rule.
I’ll post a small demo in a little bit.
