Flex can’t teach you good design
May 9, 2008
Good design / usability is good design / usability, and poor design / usability is poor design / usability. So it has always been and so it shall always be. Anyone building RIAs (cough) should know this. Products like Flex make the eye candy easy. Only humanoids can produce usable designs, or not. I do like Flex though, very accessible. Just a pity ActionScript syntax is so annoyingly close to Java that I keep finding myself staring at code wondering why it won’t compile.
