Useful Resources for Getting Started with Flex
In anticipation of our upcoming meeting, I thought I would do a quick rundown on some resources that you may find useful if you are just getting started with Flex or if you are looking to learn a little more about Flex.
Flex.org - This is the portal for all things Flex.
MXNA Blog Aggregator - This site aggregates blog postings from all aroung the Adobe developer community.

RIAForge - A collection of open-source projects built using Adobe technologies.
Adobe Labs - Labs contains Betas of upcoming products, as well as useful developer tools, such as the Flex Component Kit for Flash CS3, which makes it extremely easy to create customized Flex components using Flash.
