Axiis Video Tutorial

An experimental alpha release of Axiis has been available since 360|Flex Indy.  I put together this screencast to help people get up and running with the framework.

We’ve gotten some feedback from a few people already, and some users have already told us about the awesome stuff they’re making.  Remember during Tom’s presentation when he showed the Smith Chart, the insanely complex ring of circles that motivated some of our work?  Yeah, we never attempted to implement that.  It was just meant to get people thinking about some of the things that can’t easily be done with other frameworks.  Well, Andrew Westberg took that slide as a challenge and has already implemented it!  Seeing what everyone is building makes this all worthwhile!

So as you develop, keep in mind that this is alpha software.  If you’re running into problems with something, please let us know so we can set you on the right path and improve things for the next release.  If you’ve got the Axiis swc sitting on your machine, build something cool, tell us about it, and let us know what went right/wrong.  If you haven’t downloaded the swc, you can get it here.

You can get in contact with us by emailing tom or michael [at] or direct a tweet towards @Axiis_DataViz.

    You can find an example of the WedgeStack here. View source is enabled. If you have specific questions, pleases post them to our google group. We’re trying to make that the central location for Axiis support.

    Axiis is great. I tried it with Gumbo, though, and could not get it to work. Do you have any news you can share about Axiis/Gumbo?

    Thanks in advance.
