Chapter 1. Getting started > Dispatching and listening for events

Session 2. Dispatching and listening for events

After you get past all the hype about RIAs, Flex development is distinguished by the pervasiveness of two main things: events and data binding. In this session, we’ll see how events work; in the next, we’ll explore data binding. It may seem odd to dive right into events and data binding before even looking at how Flex applications are structured, but since events and data binding are everywhere in Flex, it’s preferable to confront them right away so that the other examples aren’t mysterious.
