Flash Professional CC 2015: A New Era in Animation and Interactivity

Here is the recording and slides for my presentation “Flash Professional CC 2015: A New Era in Animation and Interactivity” for the Boulder Valley Adobe User Group.

See how Flash Professional CC lets you create assets and animations for any use case, device, browser or platform. Too often, users confuse the Flash Professional application with the Flash runtimes and believe they can target only certain browsers and devices with their content. Not so! Adobe has been enhancing the creative toolset within Flash Professional while building support for custom platforms. See what new creative tooling is now built into this premiere animation tool from Adobe – and how to use these exciting new tools to produce content which runs virtually anywhere!


Adobe MAX 2015 – Flash Professional Resources

Giving Flash Professional Another Look (via @clockmaker_bot)

Had a really productive MAX this year with one session and a lab given twice – meaning that I presented across all three days of the conference. I was positive going into MAX about where Adobe is taking the application… but after talking with attendees and discussing the product with Adobe employees and community members I am absolutely convinced that the next year will be AMAZING for Flash Professional no matter what platforms you are targeting today.

The main drive of this post though, is to bring a bunch of resources together regarding my speaking experience at MAX this year, and around Flash Professional in general. So without further ado…

Flash Professional CC Q&A Recap

Here is the recap post from the Flash Professional CC Q&A I did with Adobe Customer Care yesterday. There was an overwhelming amount of interest which pushed the event a full 15+ minutes past the allotted time – which is great! This clearly demonstrates the passion and enthusiasm that people have for both Flash Professional CC and the wider Adobe Flash Platform.
