Build great Flash apps

Thursday, November 29th, 2012 by Servage

Previously we have described a few resources to learn and improve HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL skills – which are mainly used for websites and backend operations. However, Flash has also been an important factor in the web-world for quite some time, and especially for desktop apps and games, there still is a huge market available. So making services available as Flash apps still works for that target audience, thought some other platforms haveĀ abandonedĀ it.

Flash Mobile Application Development For Dummies

“Flash is installed on 98 percent of browsers and runs on most smartphones, delivering RIA content and videos. With Flash 10.1 for mobile devices, developers have the perfect tool to create a richer experience. This friendly guide covers the tools needed to develop native mobile device apps as well as Web Flash mobile apps, including games, and does it all in the easy-to-follow For Dummies style.”

Flash Game Development by Example

“In each chapter you’ll build a complete game, starting with simple puzzlers and working your way up to games similar to the most popular online casual games. Each game introduces a range of essential skills that all Flash game developers should know. There’s never a dull moment — you’re building working, fun games right from Chapter 1. If you’ve never developed a game before or you’ve made a start but want to refine your skills and build complete, successful projects then this book is just what you need.”

Real-World Flash Game Development

“Your deadline just got moved up. Your artist has never worked with Flash before. Your inner programmer is telling you that no OOP is a big Oops! Any Flash developer can share similar tales of woe. This book breaks down the process of Flash game development into simple, approachable steps. Never heard of a game loop before? No idea what a design pattern is? No problem! Chris Griffith gives you real-world expertise, and real-world code that you can use in your own games. Griffith has been building games in Flash long enough to know what works and what doesn’t. He shows you what you need to know to get the job done.”
