I was sick and was not able to present the new Flex Viewer at the ESRI Dev Summit. My colleagues Bjorn and Mansour(@mraad) did a very good job put the new viewer under the spotlight. So far I’ve heard is, EVERYONE LOVES IT!
The ESRI Ireland folks post a fairly comprehensive blog entry to describe what the new Flex Viewer is. I have to quote what it said in the end:
The existing Viewer is great. The new Viewer is even better – that’s progress.
Thank you the Ireland friends! BTW, they’ve done very impressive works customizing the existing Viewer. I’m very proud of them!
Here are some comments I’ve got from tweets:
@cageyjames The new flex viewer is exactly how it should be. The old wacky zooming window bubbles is dead!
[come on, the old on is not that bad:-) It’s just got tired]
[Of cause we do. I even joined the team.]
[You got that right my friend. That’s a major focus of the new viewer design and dev]
I’ll be honest with you, what you’ve seen at the #DevSummit was small portion of what on my mind. I was a bit of surprised by the overwhelmingly positive feedback, even though it’s indeed very encouraging. The #DevSummit is kind of coming out of shadow session. The biggest splash will be in the coming UC. Just wait and see.
