Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

This seems to not have received the amount of love it should have so I thought I would help get the word out.

Christophe has a solid blog post about using custom Metadata in AS3 classes. Most don’t understand you can use Reflection in AS3 to build some pretty sweet apps. I used Reflection in an app last year and it was really a sweet way of inspecting my classes, deciding which to load, and a few other goodies it helped me overcome. Basically, no more “if” statement for that specific app. Unfortunately it is an NDA app so I can’t speak on it. 🙁
