Integrating Flex and Rails with RubyAMF - RailsConf

One of the coolest things about Rails, besides the obvious, is that you get a multi-format client almost for free.

RubyAMF is a Rails plug-in that allows easy and fast integration between Flex applications and Rails using Adobe’s open format for transferring typed data to and from Flash applications. In this session we’ll walk through building a Flex application powered by a Rails back-end service. We’ll see how to work with translation to native objects in both directions, working with hierarchical data and more advanced configuration options. We’ll be expounding on some topics covered in “Flex on Rails: Building Rich Internet Applications with Adobe Flex 3 and Rails 2,” a new book from Addison Wesley co-authored by the speaker.
