“AS3 Signals promoted in ‘game theory and design on the flash platform’ #adobemax” — xtyler

“the power of Signals cannot be understated. They are so much more efficient than the native AS3 event mechanism it’s just ridiculous. Is there any way we can somehow add a meta attribute on Signals declared in code to have the MXML intellisense in flash builder show it like it’s an event? I would love to see someone build a whole component framework for flash from the ground up using only pure Signals. Also, you might mention RoboLegs + Signals is a really good combination for larger project. We have implemented something like this on our flex 4 research app over at http://www.dedoose.com and it’s been nothing sort of amazing in terms of flexibility and maintainability.” — JTtheGeek
