In merging design and programming, Macromedia Flash offers designers the unique opportunity to control the functionality and create and complete their vision of a dynamic website. By having a solid knowledge of Actionscript, designers bridge the gap between design and programming and almost instantaneously become a more valuable asset to their team. Companies that had one designer and one programmer can now hire a designer who can both code and design.
In a business climate where companies are looking to do more for less, the appeal of replacing a designer and a programmer with someone who can both code and design is great.
The goal of this presentation is to provide designers with an overview of some of the key tools and concepts of Actionscript in Flash, providing them with the basics they need to design and program dynamic websites.
