"Adobe Flex 3 allows us to create more rich and enabling online experiences to represent our brands more accurately. For our DeMarini brand, we created a multichannel video player driven from XML that is a complete Flex 3 application. We used the new style design view for skinning and for styling the various components within the application. The short learning curve for Flex 3 was also imperative for the goal of updating the Wilson brand sites. In just a day or two, developers were able to start working within the Flex Builder IDE. I challenge anyone to be able to do that with other solutions."— Nick Collins, senior Flex developer
