Getting Started With Gumbo

Posted by Sravan | September 2, 2008 .

The Flex team has been sharing nightly builds of Gumbo (Flex 4 project code name). The Gumbo home page was recently updated with a number of resources. Just in time, Mike Chambers has taken pains to put together various resources that are currently available for us.

Design in Mind, Developer Productivity, and Framework Evolution are its major goals also being perceived as its themes. After the terms user-friendly and developer-friendly now seeming commonplace (though their significance doesn’t diminish), Gumbo distinguishes itself with its aim to also be designer-friendly.

The first beta release is approaching. I advise you to start with this introduction to Gumbo’s component architecture if you are planning to get started. There are a lot of expectations on this release, especially because of the new architecture. The Flex Team has been ambitiously working to integrate these major changes into the existing component model of Halo (Flex 1, 2, 3).

As you move on, you might appreciate some examples. Thankfully, there are already a couple of guys, Sherif Abdou and Greg J, who have been posting examples of Flex 4.

Don’t forget that Thermo is a big product associated with Flex 4. It is a product being designed to help RIA designers create their UIs easily. Read a few facts and videos about Thermo here.
