While focusing on this, I have also been working on a conveyance of state of the art knowledge of CS 6. I feel that this knowledge accumulated in Flex and AIR is worth sharing and is a good value from Mac Pro Video. If anyone is seeking a series of tutorials for Adobe CS6 Flash Builder, I have begun recording a 15-20 part series in how to use this technology. it will be released in a series of video courses over the nest few months. Beginning with Flash Builder 101, the introduction, the courseware will eventually end in developing complex mobile applications that use accelerometers, dynamic maps, GPS and more.
MacProVideo has commissioned a series of video tutorials, each covering around 20 unique lessons. As an Adobe MAX Master for two consecutive years, I like to imagine that the courses I have developed are worth of being in the top 0.5% (requirements for MAX Master). The result has been to put these into production.
Here are are the links to the first courses. The curriculum has a lot fo thought put into it in order to make it the most effective way to learn the technology in the least amount of time.
The Intro to Flash Builder 101 is available at http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/flash-builder-101-intro-to-flash-builder. If you are familiar with setting up applications and building Hello World, this may be a bit primitive but things progress faster from here.
Flash Builder 102: Working with Layout Containers continues the learning path to get to the basics of how to architect and design your application's layout. The complete instructions to build a functional word processor are also included.
Flash Builder 103: Building a Fille Browser Application advances the learning curve very quickly and shows how to add images and deploy the built-in graphical themes that get you quickly design and building an attractive UI (User Interface). You’ll also learn how to set up the FileBrowserDataGrid object – the heart of this powerful app. This will show you how to work with the File Systems on both desktop and mobile applications.
The next batch of 3 more videos will build on this knowledge and take it further. Please note that while the company offering the courses is named "Mac Pro Video", the courses are designed too be effective for both PC and OSX versions of CS6.
Also - for the first 100 people who buy this, I will include source code for mobile applications if you email me at duane at technoracle-systems for com. This is an offer limited to November 15 and not endorsed officially by Mac Pro Video, just a special promise from me ;-)
