I recently gave a presentation on haXe at the Strands offices in Corvallis and Seattle. I think it raised a few eyebrows, but probably ended up raising more questions than it answered. This was to be expected, as haXe is pretty unique in its ability to target multiple web-related platforms. The devil is in the details, and so I thought it was best to post everything here on the blog so that interested individuals can go over the specifics in a more involved way.
