Flash 8 for Developers
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

This 2-day workshop is no less than 70% hands-on, and no more than 30% lecture — participants "learn by doing." The workshop is designed for experienced application developers, and introduces them to the Flash IDE and how best to develop applications using ActionScript 2 for the Flash 8 Player. The workshop begins with an overview of the Flash workflow to help developers better understand it from the designers perspective. Participants take an in-depth look at how to use ActionScript to interface with the Flash timeline animations and library. Next we learn how to use modular OOP techniques to create robust applications using Flash.

The ActionScript training progresses through basic syntax and code structure, and then moves on to Class based programming, and subclasses of the major object types. We will also cover using components, and working with media such as sound and video streams. Upon completion of the workshop, the participants will not only have a clear understanding of the ActionScript 2.0 language and Built-in Classes, but will also know how to create custom classes and packages, and how to integrate all the controls with a typical Flash timeline driven animation and linkage to Library content. All the applications created will demonstrate best programming practices and practical ways to leverage pre-existing design and animation content in the Flash movie file.
