James Polanco is a Web application architect and cofounder of DevelopmentArc. He has dabbled with Flash since the beginning, but became serious about development and research with the release of Flash MX. He has focused primarily on ActionScript development, design patterns, and component implementations—a natural fit for Flex development and Web application planning and architecture. He has worked with such clients as Scion.com, Lexus.com, Toyota.com, Libsyn Podcast Analytics Dashboard, Fake Science Music Store, ILM The show, and Adobe Systems. He is an avid blogger, speaker, and researcher with a particular interest in technology implementations, best practices, and analysis of Web enabled tools and technologies.
