I. Remoting Fundamentals > 1. Introduction to Flash Remoting

Chapter 1. Introduction to Flash Remoting

When I was an 11-year-old kid, I thought I was pretty good on a bike. I could do wheelies around the neighborhood, drive on dirt hills, jump ramps. It wasn’t enough, though. I wanted to make the transition to a minibike, which is basically a little bike with a lawn mower engine on it. If all I needed was my riding skills, I probably would have been set. Unfortunately, keeping my feet in one place, turning the throttle, and pressing the hand brakes on the minibike were unknown territories. My first time out I turned the throttle too far, lost my footing, and forgot how to hit the brake. I landed in a heap in the street.

If I had put a little forethought into it, I would have realized that riding a bike and riding a minibike were completely different things. Only some aspects were the same; by learning the new aspects and applying my prior knowledge of riding a bike, I eventually figured out how to stay put without falling on my butt.
