Teaching Intro to Flash at Tunxis Again

Category : Teaching

Looks like I’ll be teaching at Tunxis again this semester. Can’t wait to get started again as I have a lot of fun the last time we did this. The class is going to be restructured slightly to showcase the strengths of flash without showing too much to overwhelm students. Last year I think I may have gone a bit too advanced and gone beyond the comfort level of some students. Furthermore, with the impending ‘death of flash ‘quickly approaching I don’t think it makes too much sense to spend a ton of time on it .

More on the death of flash in the next post. This is not to say that it’s dead yet but its being used less and less by good designers and developers for good reason.
