360Flex “Flex with PHP” Presentation

Posted on March 6, 2007 | 3 comments

Currently the 360Flex conference is on it’s second day. More than half over. I had the fun opportunity to be called out of a session to find out that my presentation has been changed from today til tomorrow (Ben Forta flys out tomorrow and needed to switch). The switch doesn’t bother just glad to help. So for those that are wondering it is changed to tomorrow at 2:30pm.

I have prepared and some example code based on Tom Ortega’s 360Flex Contact Manager. It takes the Flex application Tom created in Flex 101 and puts a PHP backend on it. The examples I will be walking through is not just one way but 4 different methods of talking to Flex with PHP. I will show how to communicate with Flex through XML (Simple), FlashVars, SOAP (Nusoap), and AMF (AMF0 and AMF3).

In the process I have updated the RemoteObjectAMF0 component I created many a month ago.

Some time when I get back from the conference I’ll talk about the specific updates I made to RemoteObjectAMF0. Those attending the conference will get the sneak peek.

    Yeah, Renaun rocks! I was dreading all the, “But where is the backend code so I can tie this into a backend” questions. I was thinking of how to best explain my complete lack of time and not come off as trying to get out of the work. I would’ve liked to do a backend, but planning a conference does not lend itself to free time. =( Never fear though, for folks like Renaun swoop in to save the day. All the 101ers tomorrow are getting links to here! Thanks again, Renaun!
