May Meeting Recap: Custom button class in Flash presented by Shane Hoffa

Thanks to everyone in attendance at the May meeting and especially to Shane Hoffa for his in-depth presentation on creating a custom button class in Flash and demonstrated ActionScript3 versus 2. Shane's working files (zip) will be posted so please check back for them.

Here are some of the topics, tools and websites we discussed during the course of the meeting:

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle. A large and vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities, research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse platform."

Adobe Flex SDK:
"Flex is a highly productive, open source framework for building and maintaining expressive web applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops and operating systems. This site is focused on the development of the Flex SDK. If you are looking for more information on how to use Flex, you may wish to visit the Flex Developer Center."

FlashDevelop is a popular open source ActionScript 2/3 and web development environment. FlashDevelop seemlessly integrates with Adobe Flash IDE, Adobe Flex SDK, MTASC, haXe and swfmill."
ActionScript Library:
Loads of great information at this site including the tutorial "
Getting Started with ActionScript 3.0 in Adobe Flash CS3".

Upcoming Meeting Dates:

Thursday, June 19th 6-8pm. - An intro to Web Applications with ColdFusion
Wednesday, July 30th 6-8pm. - Casual Meeting at Panera Bread, 4263 Union Deposit Road
Harrisburg, PA 17111
