While I’m in Sydney, Australlia for MXDU (MX Down Under), I will be running a one day workshop based on my very well-received (if I do say so myself) 3 day Flash MX 2004 Enterprise Development workshop. It is being organized by the same amazing folk who organize the conference, and will be running on February 16th (day “0” of the conference).
If you are looking to boost your development skills to the next level, or polish the OO skills you already have, this is a great start. The original workshop received rave reviews (see some of them below) – the most recent run of it (in London, UK) received an average rating of 9.5 out of 10 from the attendees. It has a strong focus on real-world applications, and on delivering a maximum of retainable, applicable knowledge in a minimum of time (I pride myself on pushing attendees to just under the “brain exploding” point).
The full workshop description and reviews are below. For more info, or to sign up, go to http://mxdu.com/go/workshops/enterprise-development.
An intensive workshop presented by Grant Skinner helping youÂ to learn the skills, approaches and processes necessary to successfully plan and implement robust enterprise applications using Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Professional.Â
The primary objectives of this workshop is to develop confidence and competency with:
- The Flash MX 2004 Professional development environment
- Object Oriented Programming in a production environment
- Strategies for loading and handling external data and assets
- Introduction to effective development process, including Object Oriented Analysis and Design
Prerequisites: This workshop is targetted at intermediate Flash developers. Attendees should be comfortable with the Flash MX development environment, ActionScript 1.0, and programming basics (variables, functions, conditionals, manipulating movie clips).Â Prior experience with MX 2004 or Object Oriented Programming is not required.
“I highly recommend Flash MX 2004 Enterprise Development with Grant Skinner for any intermediate/advanced Flash developer looking to take their skills soaring to the next level.Â This is a rare opportunity to learn from a world-class, award winning developer.”
(M. Grave, Multimedia Instructor)
“Really great. It was an excellent and engaging introduction to OOP in Actionscript which has given me the confidence to begin to implement it in real life projects. Grant was clear, concise, friendly and very knowledgable. He was also determined to ensure that every one of us was happy with what we’d learnt by always asking for question and volunatarily going over and over difficult concepts in different ways to drill the information into us.”
“Excellent. Great background knowledge, real life experiences, real life samples, great communication skills, patients, listens to students, well prepared”
“Extremely informative. I think we could have all picked Grants’ brain for an entire week! Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, I doubt there are many people who know their subject as well as or better than Grant.”
