So, I have a fairly large-scale flash application that I want to build.
In fact, it’s the whole reason I’ve been learning all this web application development stuff. It’s the reason I stopped freelancing as BoyBlack over a year ago, and took on a fulltime job at Hello Computer – so that I could get paid to implement all the research I’ve been doing, in a realistic fashion, one manageable project at a time. It’s also the reason why I recently negotiated to reduce my working hours to two days a week – so that I can start building the next version of my application.
But now that I’m ready to sit down and build this thing I’m faced with a couple of tough decisions:
- IDE: FDT or Flex Builder?
- PHP Framework: CodeIgniter or Zend Framework?
- Remoting: AMFPHP or WebOrb? Or just go JSON
Go Mr Moock! Anyone who works with Flash should read these asap:
