If you’re a non-developer looking to get started with building Flex Viewer widgets, you might find the following document useful:

A Beginner’s Guide to extending the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex

When I started at Esri UK, I had a fair amount of development experience but I was completely new to Flex. I ended up taking a lot of notes while I was learning my way around the Viewer, which were eventually turned into a beginner’s guide aimed at non-developers.

The guide is a high-level overview of the widget development process and the various technologies involved. For more detailed step-by-step instructions, ArcGIS.com has lots of helpful resources.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome, and we really hope you find it useful!
