I’m currently taking Flash Class as part of my effort of picking up some new skills. Fortunately, my local university extension offers a web design certification program for folks interested in continuing education. I think I’m going to go ahead and do it. So anyhow, I’ve had two sessions of the intro level Flash class and so far I really like Flash. It seems like a powerful tool that I could use for presentations and to make prototype websites and interfaces. Anyhow, here’s some stuff I did while trying to pay attention to lecture. Little did I know we were going to do a bouncing ball the first day — about an hour into the 4-hour session I had already started playing around and made the bouncing ball. I also made some dripping blood which wasn’t part of the class, but … well … you know how that goes. Anyhow, Flash is great. One you learn the basics, you can do some neat things very quickly. Check out the fun I had :).
Next class I have to turn in a 15 – 30-sec banner ad that advertises me in some way. I will post it here too when I’ve completed it. I’m pretty dangerous now that I’ve had 8-hours of instruction ;p.
