Chet Haase

I worked as an architect in the Java Client Group at Sun, followed by a stint at Adobe on the Flex SDK team. I can now be found at Google, working on the Android SDK.

I co-authored the book Filthy Rich Clients with Romain Guy. I also wrote the book Flex 4 Fun, about the graphical and animated side of Flex.

You can see what I'm up to now on my blog Codedependent, where I post articles, demos, code, and videos on graphics, animation, and other geeky-fun topics.

You can also check out the lighter side of my interests on my comedy blog at, or in my book When I am King..., available from
