What is Flex?
With Flex you can create applications delivered via a web page, run locally from a desktop (as Adobe AIR), or mobile device. But the simplest way of defining Flex is that it can create .swf files without Flash.
When considering learning Flex, its important to see some of the RIA (Rich Internet Applications) that Flex can create...

Okay, so what is Flex Builder? 

This tutorial teaches how to use Adobe's Flex Builder 3 to develop Flex. This program dramatically simplifies creating Flex applications. Similar to what Dreamweaver does for coding HTML, Flex Builder does that for Flex.  And if you're familiar with Dreamweaver, there are some definite similarities in the two programs. Actually many past CartoonSmart students might feel like Flex Builder is a mashup of Dreamweaver and Flash.  A free 60 day trial of Flex Builder 3 is free at Adobe.com/Flex

Why Learn Flex if you already know Flash?...

Good question. Both programs publish to .swf, and both Flex Builder 3 and Flash CS4 have native support for publishing to AIR. But while the end result can be the same, they get there using different methods. Depending on how you like to develop, would determine which you favor. Software developers tend to favor Flex, while designers favor Flash. But neither is a replacement for the other.  If you already know Flash, learning Flex will expand what you already know about Actionscript 3 and give you a more fine-tuned method for creating applications.

Of course, one huge reason to learn Flex... Flex developers are in high demand.
