This complete training program from Adobe Press and video2brain combines over 9 hours of exceptional video instruction with a full-color 120-page guide to teach you the fundamentals of object-oriented programming, the basics of ActionScript and MXML, and how to use Adobe® Flash Builder 4. By the time you’re done, you’ll have built a classic web application with animated transitions, navigation features, and CSS styles. You’ll also know how to access XML data from a server, manipulate the data client-side, write some basic logic code, and debug the application when things go wrong.
Topics covered in this course include:
• The relationship between Flash Builder, Eclipse, and Flex
• Creating data-driven applications
• Mastering data binding
• Working with MXML, ActionScript, and CSS
• Using Spark and Halo components
• Understanding view states
The lessons are wrapped in a feature-rich interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside your application.
As with all titles in the Learn by Video series, the project files used in the lessons are included with the course, and interactive review questions help reinforce what you’ve learned. Selected videos are also provided ready to be downloaded for viewing on your iPhone, iPod, or other compatible mobile device.
