Connecting Flex Mobile to MicroStrategy

Starting with Flex SDK 4.5, Adobe began supporting compiling your application to natively run on iOS and Android.  This presented a great opportunity to write code one time and then have it functional on several platforms.  Unfortunately, MicroStrategy Visualization SDK currently only supports Flex SDK 4.1, just missing out on all of the Mobile goodness.  That got me thinking though, that I personally only use...

Developing With Version Control Using Dropbox

Anyone who has done any kind of programming will attest to the value of version control (a feature that is sorely missing from MicroStrategy, but that’s a discussion for another day).  For me, when developing in Flex or Java, using some level of version control has saved me on many occasions.  To be specific, version control is the ability to view different versions of source code...
