Bullet Proofing Flex Components with Jeffry Houser

Jeffry Houser


When you build components for your own Flex applications, you are working in a controlled environment and can make a lot of assumptions about how your component will be used. However, if you want to release components out into the wild for others to use? It is inevitable that folks will use your component in ways you didn’t consider; and they’re going to blame you if it doesn’t work. This presentation will cover some tips and tricks to help you prepare and optimize your components for reuse.
