Where to go from here

For more information on using and applying best practices for your Flex development process be sure to see the second part of this article, which will be published on DZone in the coming weeks.


Here is a quote that you should keep in mind while you are going through the material presented in this article. I think this quote is pretty applicable:

"Every project targeting Flex is different, and thus best practices vary depending on the team involved and the project at hand. I have seen all manner of project practices that work for small teams but fail for larger teams and vice versa. This is my take on Flex best practices from having looked at many projects over the past three years. In many ways, my recommendations should not come as a surprise, as these are tenets of classical software development." - Ted Patrick
