Naturally, readers can adapt their learning to whatever schedule best suits their needs, but the message that a reader with no prior programming experience can learn the language or development environment in one weekend will be carried throughout the book.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Flash is rapidly becoming the biggest killer app in design since Photoshop. If you've waited to learn it, and worried about its complexity, you should know that Flash 5 has been redesigned for greater ease of use -- and that Flash 5 Weekend Crash Course can help you master it in just 30 half-hour lessons.

Digital graphics expert (and TV Technology magazine columnist) Shamms Mortier organizes Flash into small, accessible chunks, one building on the last. You'll start by mastering the revamped Flash interface, then learn techniques for creating a virtually unlimited range of animations and dynamic Web page elements -- up to and including Flash ActionScript.

Squeeze in a lesson every time you've got a free half hour. Before you know it, Flash will be on your toolbelt -- and in your portfolio. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant and writer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.

    FLASH 5:WEEKEND CRASH COURSE

    This is a great book to brush up on knowlegde you already have. This is a horrible begginer book. Expect a quick overview for a weekend book. Also very little pictures and examples make this a very boring title.
