Gaia’s revolutionary scaffolding engine generates all your Flash files and classes for you and gets you up and running with a fully functional site in less than 10 minutes without writing a single line of Actionscript! This presentation demonstrates Gaia’s pragmatic and agile approach to Flash development, and gets your feet wet with real world examples of Gaia in action.
