Why I keep going Back To Flash

Over the past year, I’ve done very little in the Flash/Flex world; Not because I thought the Apple had won, but more around the interest of learning what else is out there. After a year of HTML5/Javascript, iOS, Android/Java, and a little Python; Everything I learn makes me want to get back to Flash. Albeit I’ve learned that prototyping with jQuery(HTML) can be quite easy, and extremely fun; having to tweak my code for different browsers, reminded me of the negatives.

Then while iOS and Android offer extremely nice IDE’s for coding, and meticulously documented API’s, getting from idea to app can be a headache specially if you’re coding for both. Enter Appcelerator’s Titanium, which allows you to write apps for iPhone and Android using JavaScript (and a few other languages); I found the size and performance of the applications to be a little bit hard to swallow, but at least you’re not jumping around between Objective-C and JAVA.

And then I start looking through all my favorite Flash blogs and am reminded of why I love Flash so much in the first place. First off:

Simple Flash GUI Tool – an extension of MinimalComps by Keith Peters, and probably one of my favorite Flash libraries outside of TweenMax. This one is by Justin Windle over at SoulWire. And was originally posted like 5 months ago.

PixelBender 3D – Do I need to say more? Hardware 3D rendering, built on top of “Molehill”

Wallaby – This is a sweet idea to turn Flash sites into HTML. Not that I completely agree with the idea, but the option is pretty sweet.

Last but NOT LEAST:

Adobe AIR – Yup it’s AIR. If you didn’t know already, with AIR you can write Flash applications to run on your favorite Android or iOS device, as well as some of the newer Blackberry (RIM) devices. It also does desktop too… but you probably already knew that.

So to those who said Flash is dead, let me know when the other half of the internet opens up for you.

 

BFusion/BFlex 2010 – 2 Sessions on Flex 4 – 9.12.2010

[From BFlex site]
What is BFusion/BFlex?

BFusion/BFlex is no normal conference. It is a no-nonsense, learn-to-code* and learn-it-from-the-best event. Each day there are six full hours of hands-on training with the various technologies and techniques. You bring your computer and desire to learn and our excellent instructors challenge you to take your mind to new places. http://bflex.indiana.edu/

———————————

This past weekend I went out to Indiana University with Adam Flater for BFlex. We did two sessions on Flex 4; Skinning in Flex 4, and Flex 4 for Flex 3 developer. The purpose of the latter session was to try and get Flex 3 developers up to speed on the changes inside of Flex 4. One of the main details is the new Spark component architecture, and how it differs from the old MX architecture, mainly there’s just a new package nomenclature, as well as slight changes to the old component names (i.e. HBox is now HGroup) ; There are major changes to the States classes as well as the addition of new Layout class that decouples layout logic from individual component definitions. In this session we went into how to use layouts efficiently, as well as how to create custom layout classes,  the process of extending the basic layout class and applying it to components, and also how to change layouts at run-time. We went into detail about how to use the new DataGroup component, which is similar to the old Flex 3 repeater, and also using virtualization for dealing with larger data sets.

The skinning session dealt more with how to style the new components inside of Flex 4. The new major change is Flex 4’s ability to use FXG, which make drawing graphic primitives inside of Flex 4 that can be used very easily to apply skins. Using the basic example of a button, we showed how adding states and extending the basic button class is now alot easier than in Flex 3. Using the new dot( acheter cialis france.) notation in the Spark architecture simplifies the process of creating skins, as well at how it decouples the visual implementation of a skin, from the data logic of a component, making skins extremely re-useable. The new skinning framework now allows for skins that can be state based, and even change layouts dynamically. We also showed how to extend the base SkinnableContainer class to apply styling and skinning to components that have none (i.e. Group), and even extending the Panel container to create a custom skin. We lightly touched on Flex4’s CSS capabilities, but Flex4 CSS will be a post all on its own.

We promised our code examples to the attendees, and we haven’t forgotten, but we are polishing them up, as well as we will be creating screen casts, so anyone can better follow along. (it’s about 3 hours worth of information, so please be patient 🙂

For more resources the Adobe Developer Connection is a great place to get up to speed with the newest features of Flex 4.

Thanks to all of the organizers, staff, attendees, and speakers that attended, it was great to meet all of you. Next up  I’ll speak at Rocky Mountain Flash Camp, Oct 12.

Hi-Res Printing in Flash with AlivePDF

Printing with Flash has always been one of those nagging issues I’ve never been able to successfully defeat, using the Flash PrintJob class that is. Although I want to sit here, and tell you how awful the PrintJob class is, I’ll let you try to explore that rocky road all by yourself; When you get to the point when you’re trying to use PixelBender for possibly getting a better algorithm for blending from pixel to pixel, and its still not working let me know, I could’ve saved you like 2 weeks worth of hair pulling by simply telling you to use: AlivePDF.

[Presentation] Learning From Example – 03.13.2010

[UPDATE] This did not use any Android AIR/Flash.

Chicago Google Technology conference GTUG #7.

The original idea was developed by Adam Flater, Jesse Freeman and Jordan Snyder, my co-workers at Roundarch. Utilizing Merapi, a Java-AIR messaging bridge, we are able to control a Flash presentation from the comfort of your palm (in my case, my Nexus One). The example is a basic one, but the wow-factor is what its all about. It also opens the door to show that we can have alot more complex interactions and messaging between an android phone and the flash platform.

You can find more information about merapi at www.merapiproject.org

Follow @adamflater and @dmeeker creators of Merapi.

The project utilized BumEngine, created by Jesse Freeman (@theflashbum)

ZUI | Exploring Zoomable User Interfaces with OpenZoom

zui prototye
Work in progress

UPDATE: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. HIGH LIKELIHOOD OF CRASHING YOUR BROWSER

Here is basic proof of concept inserting OpenZoom interfaces within openzoom interfaces to make a basic image gallery. Further tweak of the controls will prove a very nice browsing experience. Also pairing with Flash Player 10’s capabilities for 3D and we make something quite impressive, and very lightweight (this swf being 76k).

None of this would be possible without Daniel Gasienica, creator of OpenZoom. The depth of his work around OpenZoom alone is breathtaking, let alone the countless amount of guides he’s writing/wrote on the subject. These three posts alone are must-reads if you plan on using OpenZoom:
Inside Deep Zoom –Part I: Multiscale Imaging
Inside Deep Zoom –Part II: Mathematical Analysis
Inside Deep Zoom – Part III: Deep Zoom in Flash

I realized the mixture of OpenZoom with AS3’s 3D capabilities offers a pseudo-3D engine. That doesn’t mean OpenZoom won’t play well with a fully loaded 3D engine….

[Tutorial] Debugging AS3 from the browser using FDT

If you’re an Actionscript programmer, you should probably at least know of FDT. If you don’t, travel over to their site, and download a copy of the software (free trial for 30 days). I’m assuming in this post you already have it installed, and you know how to compile files, and maybe even know how write your own ANT scripts.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

One of the nicest features of FDT is its debugger, it is full of features you would never find in the IDE’s (CS3/4/5), and if you’re used to debugging in Eclipse it follows that same route.

Quite often I’ll be brought onto a project in the middle of its development cycle, so I don’t have an option on how it’s setup. Quite often in Flash, I end up dealing with a bunch of FLA files and I’m forced to use the IDE for compiling. Same thing with Flex, but luckily FDT can run MXML, so that’s not much of an issue, it might just take a little extra time to setup your Flex project in FDT. What I’m trying to say here is don’t worry how you’re getting your original project (Flash, Flex, in case of a miracle its already FDT), with a little bit of configuration time, you can get just about any Actionscript project to run in FDT.

New Year, New Format, New Blog Post

Over the past year I realized my blog was an unorganized collection of random thoughts I decided to compile on a whim… which is okay, I like my train of thought, its sporadic. I’m sure like myself and anyone who’s ever read my blog, you’ve realized you never really know what to expect.

Well that’s going to change.

Over the past year I’ve been studying some really cool facets about multiple different languages, teaching myself Python (which has more functionality than i ever imagined), started learning OpenFrameworks, and started learning some juicy tid bits about Android development.  Then there’s always Actionscript, where I’ve increased my knowledge by leaps and bounds…
