Meet the Author

Phillip Kerman is an independent programmer, teacher, and writer who specializes in the Adobe Flash platform. His degree in imaging and photographic technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology was earned back when “multimedia” had a different meaning than it has today. One of Phillip’s internships, for example, involved programming multiple slide projector presentations with dissolves synchronized to a sound track–the multimedia of the 1980s. In 1993 he found Macromedia Authorware a natural fit for his interests and skills. After getting his start at The Human Element, Inc., he moved back to Portland, Oregon, more than a decade ago to work on his own.

 

Phillip has transitioned his expertise from Authorware to Director and, now, to Flash. Over the past decade, he has had to adapt to more than 20 version upgrades! In addition to retooling and building his own skills, Phillip finds teaching the biggest challenge. He has trained and made presentations around the world, in such exotic locations as Reykjavik, Iceland; Melbourne, Australia; Amsterdam, Holland; and McAlester, Oklahoma. Phillip has programmed several games on MSN and Messenger Live including Sudoku Too and Jigsaw Too. He also programmed the real-time cattle auction site stampedecattle.com.

 

Phillip is also the author of Macromedia Flash @work, Flash MX 2004 for Rich Internet Applications,and ActionScripting in Flash MX from New Riders Publishing.

    Northwest Vista College uses this book "Introduction To Multimedia"

    It is a generic textbook. I feel the Adobe tutorials are more useful.
