Adobe Flash Catalyst is a new interactive design tool for rapidly creating application interfaces and interactive content – without coding. In this session, Mark will show you how you can use Flash Catalyst to transform a static design comp from Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop into a functioning interface. You’ll learn how to turn pictures of components into real ones, to add transitions and effects, and to create dynamic lists using sample data. You’ll also see how you can optionally add additional functionality with code using Flash Builder.
In addition, Mark will show you what’s happening behind the scenes, providing an overview of the technologies leveraged by Flash Catalyst. These include the new XML-based graphics format called FXG, and Flex 4 Framework, which introduces a number of new features to make it easier to build more highly customized and unique applications with a greater focus on design.
