Creating Visual Experiences with Flex 3.0 free pdf Don't settle for Flex's boring, standard user interface. Set your Flex applications apart with the breakthrough skinning and programming techniques found in Creating Visual Experiences with Flex 3.0. Leading Flex developers Juan Sanchez and Andy McIntosh show how to build stunning Flex and AIR applications. You'll learn how to take a design and translate that design into Flex or AIR without sacrificing fidelity, and how to apply state-of-the-art branding that adds value to all your Flex applications, no matter what they do or who you're building them for. Sanchez and McIntosh illuminate every aspect of creating superior visual experiences with Flex 3.0 and AIR and discuss planning, design, architecture, and proven user-interface principles, with an emphasis on technical implementation. You'll learn how to alter the standard Flex interface using all the tools available to you: skins, styling, transitions, effects, filters, graphics built with Adobe creative tools, CSS, and ActionScript 3.0 programming. The authors reveal the trade-offs associated with each approach to Flex visual experience design and help you choose the right techniques for your applications. They explain each concept and technique in detail, using real-world examples and exercises that solve specific problems and provide samples throughout each chapter. If you want your Flex and AIR applications to be a cut above the rest, this is the book that shows you how.

About Andy McIntosh

Andy McIntosh is one of the first members of EffectiveUI, a Denver-based rich Internet application agency. As an Experience Architect, he specializes in interaction design, custom component development, and programmatic skinning. His recent focus has been on migrating enterprise applications to Flex/AIR based solutions. Andy attended The Art Institute of Colorado in Denver where he earned a BA in Interactive Media Design. While in school, he discovered that merely designing applications wasn't enough and that he wanted to make them come to life. A lifelong fan of Lego and gadgetry, he learned development by taking applications apart and putting them back together. His attention to detail, in both development and design, add a mark of quality to his work that is second to none. In his own words, "Development is design, but with different tools." Blending his technical expertise with his formal training in visual design, Andy has played a major role in successful projects for clients such as Adobe, Workday, Scion, United Airlines, and others. Additionally, Andy is an advisor for Degrafa, an open-source declarative graphics framework for Flex. He currently resides in downtown Denver, and frequently travels to both coasts for business and pleasure. His interests include books, cars, music, industrial design, and remodeling his loft. He blogs useful findings and random thoughts at http://andymcintosh.com. Juan Sanchez is an Experience Architect for EffectiveUI, a leading provider of rich Internet applications, based in Denver, Colorado. He graduated from California State University, Chico with a BA in Communication Design. Juan's background is primarily in print design, branding, and advertising, however, his skills quickly expanded into Web technologies like HTML, CSS, Flash and eventually Flex. Equipped with a creative eye and logical mind, Juan walks the line between designer and developer. Juan's interests lie in user experience, usability, designer/developer collaboration, and open-source projects. As an active Flex community member, Juan manages ScaleNine.com, a Web site dedicated to compiling skins and themes for Flex. He is a regular speaker at user groups, corporate workshops, and conferences, including 360|Flex and WebManiacs. Juan is also a founding member of Degrafa, a declarative graphics framework for Flex. Juan currently lives in downtown Denver with his girlfriend Grace and a little Chihuahua named Maddie. Now that he is done with "The Book," Juan hopes to get back to restoring his '66 Ford Mustang, getting back into running, enjoying Denver, and maybe taking up drums again.
