I found a very interesting article today on a subject that is of particular interest to me at the moment. I am in the need of a good gantt chart component (for integration with www.teamworkpm.net) and after searching high and low, have come to the conclusion that it may be worth building one myself. The nature of the component means that AJAX is out (I want it to be extremely functional and fast)
My problem is that I am not very good at flash. I tried Flex Builder 3 but I have a whole load of experience with C# so I was considering silverlight. I find the IDE of Visual Studio amazing so Silverlight in C# would be a very attractive option. The Flex Builder app (Eclipse plugin/mod) just didnt do it for me....
This article though has put me in 2 minds. They make the very good point that Flex has been along for so long that there are so many resources available to developers. And of course there is the added bonus of being able to deploy as an AIR application.
After reading the article, I have decided to put the effort into Flex development. Can anybody point me in the direction of the best Flex for beginners articles, samples etc?
