The majority of the code in an application is simple stuff – the wiring, the glue, that sort thing. However, just about every rich media application has one “hard part”. One piece of the app that you have never created before – in short, something unknown and risky. When that sort of problem crops up, you spike it! That is you write an end-to-end test to try out your potential solutions.
The thing is, spiking isn’t like regular development. You aren’t trying to create neat and tidy reusable code – you’re just trying to solve a problem and solve it quickly! This session will teach you how to spike out tough problems as quickly as possible by taking advantage of both Flash CS4 and AS3.
