Learn programming with Flash MX by Kristian Besley( )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learn Programming with Flash MX, a book for absolute beginners, covers the fundamental programming principles and skills that every programmer needs to master in order to create well-structured and efficient code that lives up to professional standards. This book employs a truly unique classroom-based approach to learning, with the goal of establishing core, practical programming skills.

The class project that runs through the book reinforces the learning in an integrated, real-world context, using Flash MX as the illustrative vehicle
Foundation ActionScript for Macromedia Flash MX by Sham Bhangal( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the release of Flash MX, scripting in Flash moved from being a desirable asset to an essential skill in the world of web design. ActionScript is, quite simply, the center of power in Flash, and it's no surprise that most of the advances in Flash MX are script-centric. Flash is a design tool, and ActionScript can easily scare designers. This book is for anyone who has ever looked in awe at a cutting-edge Flash site, then taken a look at some code, and run in the other direction. Learning ActionScript with friends of ED will not turn you into a boring programmer, it will turn you into someone who finally has the power to achieve what they want with their web design. This book will take you from knowing nothing about ActionScript to a firm knowledge that will allow you to exercise a previously unimaginable amount of power over your flash movies. It does this with fully-0worked examples throughout, and a case study that will leave you with a cutting-edge Flash site by the end of the book. See the final stun:design site here. The book assumes no previous knowledge of code or ActionScript, but does assume that you know the basics of the Flash interface, and have maybe created some basic timeline-based movies with tweens and so on. (If you're totally new to Flash, then you might want to take a look at friends of ED's acclaimed Foundation Flash MX, or at the more visually-oriented Flash MX Express.) This is no simple re-write of the first edition of Foundation ActionScript-with the help of friends of ED Flash guru Sham Bhangal, Foundation ActionScript has been re-structured and re-written to reflect the major changes in ActionScript brought about with Flash MX.

Flash Builder and Flash Catalyst : the new workflow by Steven Peeters( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hello and welcome to Flash Builder and Flash Catalyst: the New Workflow. I've written this book to guide you through the process of deciding how to tackle a new project. As you probably know, developing a Rich Internet Application is not always an easy task to do. There are several aspects to keep in mind. One of the key aspects is the project workflow. Not every application will have the same workflow applied to it during its creation. A lot of it depends on the size of the project, whether or not you need to connect your application to some kind of back end technology, how many people you are working with and, let's not forget this one, how the application is designed. If you have been developing RIAs in the past you are likely to have spoken unspeakable words when receiving the final design for the application from the designer on your team, especially if the designer is not familiar with the capabilities and limits of the technology that is used for actually developing the application. Or maybe you had to redo a couple of days work because of some "minor" design changes. You will no doubt have had a couple of frustrating moments in your life due to these kinds of problems

Enterprise MAC Managed Preferences by Edward R Marczak( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many systems administrators on the Mac need a way to manage machine configuration after initial setup and deployment. Apple's Managed Preferences system (also known as MCX) is under-documented, often misunderstood, and sometimes outright unknown by systems administrators. MCX is usually deployed in conjunction with an OS X server, but it can also be used in Windows environments or where no dedicated server exists at all. Enterprise Mac Managed Preferences is the definitive guide to Apple's Managed Client technology. With this book, you'll get the following: An example-driven guide to Mac OS X Managed Preferences/Client technology Recipes for common use case studies and patterns A targeted approach appropriate for any sys admin that manages Macs in an OS X or Windows environment This is the only book that focuses on this facet of OS X exclusively. If you're a sys admin, this book will take away much of the pain of working with OS X client systems. Even better, both of the authors are very involved in the Mac community--Greg Neagle is part of the MacEnterprise steering committee, and Ed Marczak is the executive editor and an author for MacTech magazine and a member of the Apple Consultants Network
