Adobe Flash Catalyst, previously codenamed “Thermo”, is a professional interaction design tool for rapidly creating application interfaces and interactive content without coding. It allows designers to transform static artwork from Adobe Creative Suite applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator into a ready to publish application interface. Flash Catalyst projects can then be extended by developers using Adobe Flex Builder.
This session will demonstrate the key features of the latest version of Flash Catalyst, including some never shown before publically. It will also provide an overview of the technologies leveraged by Flash Catalyst, including the new XML-based graphics format called FXG and an upcoming Flex 4 Framework, codenamed “Gumbo”, that introduces a number of new features to make it easier to build more highly customized and unique experiences and to enable a greater focus on design.
