These slides are from a presentation at Flex London User Group on 16 February 2010.
With so many application frameworks available which should you choose? Cairngorm? PureMVC? Mate? Swiz? Parsley? Robotlegs? Or should you roll your own? Which frameworks require you to write the most code? Which provide the easiest refactoring? Which features make frameworks flexible and which make them brittle? Which make them easy to use and which make them hard?
Richard presents an overview of how the different frameworks are architected and looks at their good and bad features. He looks at the core architecture of each, how they handle dependencies and events and the different philosophies that drive each forward.
If you’'re interested in architecture, frameworks, or design patterns, this will be of interest to you. If you need to choose a framework for a project, or you want to know more about the framework you are using, this will be essential viewing.
