  • Course Rich User Interfaces using Flex

    This course teaches you how to use the Flash Builder development environment for rapid development of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) using Flex Framework components. You will learn how to design interactive forms where CSS stylesheets and themes are applied and where the components are given skins. You will learn to make use of the markup language MXML. Also discussed is enhancing the interactivity of the applications by using ActionScript 3.0. The data types and the object model of the ActionScript 3.0 language are covered and there is ample attention to the handling of events for the flow of the application and the validation of data. Also the subject data binding where the contents of the Flex components is linked to internal or external sources such as a Web server is addressed. Herewith the Flex Data Services such as the HTTP Service are discussed. Finally attention is paid to how robust and scalable Flex RIA applications can be written based on the MVC (Model View Controller) pattern.

  • Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
