Description:

Working professionals-designers and non-designers alike-want to learn ActionScript as it's used in the real world. There will be follow-ups to the Hillman Curtis book, showcasing Flash in the context of design. And there will be reference books outlining and explaining the capabilities of Flash's ActionScript functionality. This book, however, combines referential explorations of ActionScripting functionality with used-in-the-trenches techniques honed by one of the top Flash design houses-JuxtInteractive-and then adds further perspective on each subject area by including a substantive inspirational profile of how other high-profile Flash designers do it.Imagine a seminar for Web developers covering ActionScripting, pulled together and presented not by unknown, professional seminar presenters, but by a well-known and respected Flash design house. The first part of the seminar presents ActionScripting Fundamentals, not only for those new to ActionScripting, but also to explain best practices and proper workflow to those already using ActionScripting (this also helps correct bad habits). The second part of the seminar requires the class to walk through a deconstruction of the design house's own Website; the third part requires the class to work through the building and deconstruction of a special site developed especially for the seminar. In each part of the seminar, three pedagogical methods are used: 1.) Basic lecture/exposition of the material; 2.) How-To sections focusing on hands-on learning of detailed areas; and 3.) Inspiration Inserts, where the class explores and deconstructs other high-profile sites. The Website features the projects used throughout the book, as well as other resources pulled together by the JuxtInteractive authoring/development team. This site will be a destination learning site for anyone interested in a challenging approach to learning advanced ActionScripting techniques.
