New site for flex developers: Flextips

One thing that amazes me is that there isnt a site that aggregates tips on flex that developers find in the course of developing applications. With that in mind, I have just completed some work on my new site: Running on the corank platform, the site essentially works like Digg (actually corank is a platform for creating Digg type sites). The idea is, if you find a good tip, link to it on flextips. I typically find a lot of value in people posting really simple tips that save me hours of investigative work.

Anyway so here is the model for the site:

If you find a cool tip on a website or post a cool tip on your blog, link to it on Put it under one of the categories mentioned there (if anyone feels we need more categories, let me know). Tag it appropriately as well. For tags, use the name of the flex component or class this will affect.

When you come to flextips at other times (usually more than once a day 😉 ), give various tips a thumbs up or down. That way, the more important tips start surfacing above the trivial ones.

Please leave me some feedback on the project.
