About this book


You can think of this book as a two- or three-day workshop, transcribed into book form—and much cheaper! The stick figure character is a stand-in for me teaching the workshop, and the cartoon characters are your classmates. The questions they’ll ask or the opinions they express may be your own.

I have two goals for this book: first, to teach Flex 4 in a way that exposes you to real-world Flex problems in an accessible way, and second, to have a bit of fun with this book, without being cutesy, distracting, or insulting. The purpose of the cartoons in this introductory section is to provide an amusing backstory; in the rest of the book I’ll use them to draw attention to important concepts.
