Taking to the AIR once again

I found out this morning that I'm FINLLY, after 5 months of "on hold", being put back onto my AIR project here at work. 5 months ago I was pulled off the project for a higher priority ColdFusion application. I'm just putting the finishing touches on that site now and have to be available during customer review, but I'm very happy about firing up Flex Builder again. I've been trying to keep up on my skills by submerging myself in books and training videos so I'm definitely ready. I'm just trying to get myself prepared for all of the silly syntax errors I'll end up with from crossing over my brain from ColdFusion. The same thing happened when I went from AS3 to ColdFusion. Using = instead of eq in if statments, yadda yadda yadda...it was a mess. I don't see as much of it happening this time around since I've got a little more experience under my belt now. That and I've been writing a lot of "extra curricular" Flex and AIR apps to keep my skills fresh. I probably have a lot more to offer that application now anyhow, with all the training I've had in the mean time. I love programming in ColdFusion, but I think I'm going to try and make Flex and AIR my concentration. I'll still use ColdFusion as my back end of course, but there are very few people in my company, or even my area for that matter, that have even tried to program in Flex at all. I'm going to start making changes and updates this afternoon. Wish me luck!
