Live FLEX hacking by Manish Jethani

Manish Jethani stepped up to the stage at barcamp Delhi yesterday, opened up vi, and started hacking in FLEX. Within a period of about 15 minutes, he built a FLEX application that consumed the rss feeds from youtube, displayed the top videos in a data grid, and allowed you to play the videos. Check it out! An impressive testiment to the power of FLEX as a multimedia platform, all done with completely FREE (as in beer) technology. Really cool stuff.

    Funny, Sho built the same app at FlashForward 😉
    But he was using Flex Builder.
