Flash Deconstruction: The Process, Design, and ActionScript of Juxt Interactiveby Todd Purgason
Synopses & Reviews
Imagine a seminar for web developers covering ActionScripting, pulled together and presented not by unknown, professional seminar presenters, but by a well-known and respected Flash design house. The first part of the seminar presents ActionScripting Fundamentals, not only for those new to ActionScripting, but also to explain best practices and proper workflow to those already using ActionScripting (this also helps correct bad habits). The second part of the seminar requires the class to walk through a deconstruction of the design house's own website; the third part requires the class to work through the building and deconstruction of a special site developed especially for the seminar. In each part of the seminar, three pedagogical methods are used: 1.) Basic lecture/exposition of the material; 2.) How-To sections focusing on hands-on learning of detailed areas; and 3.) special Inspiration Inserts, where the class explores and deconstructs other high-profile sites.
Book News Annotation:
Presents the approach to Flash programming and ActionScripting used by a web design agency in California named Juxt Interactive. The ten chapters share lessons learned from working with Flash 5 and building web sites for Billabong apparel. The designers break down how they added interactivity to a navigation system, built a dynamic web site with Macromedia Generator, and incorporated Flash's new XML capabilities to create an online movie maker.
