Flash in its many guises has become ubiquitous on the Web and in our lives. It serves many different purposes: it is a drawing program; it is an animation program; and it is a full-featured, modern programming language. As such, it can be approached from several different viewpoints. In particular it can attract both the artist and the computer programmer. In this class, we will explore Flash in many of its aspects from the very simplest animations to some fairly complex programming projects. We will create examples and take on projects ranging from advertisements to web site navigation to games.
