Starling, Feathers, and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA

Posted on May 27, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

As mentioned in my previous post about Apache Flex® and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA… I have also recorded a free series of videos around Starling, Feathers, and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA. You may be aware that I have a full, extended course on using Starling and Feathers to build a mobile application using Adobe AIR published over Building a Mobile App with Feathers and Starling. That course is much more involved but this set of videos should be a good introduction to using these frameworks in IntelliJ IDEA.

Apache Flex and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA

Posted on May 26, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Jun 21, 2015

I have recorded a free series of 10 videos around Apache Flex and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA. I believe that moving forward, IntelliJ IDEA is the best IDE for learning and using Apache Flex. Adobe Flash Builder used to fill this role, but Adobe has discontinued it’s free licensing to students for some time now… and will most likely not be updating that tool in the perceivable future. As a bonus – IntelliJ IDEA is an absolute beast that can handle just about anything ;) Apache Flex, Flex and Apache are either registered trademarks or trademarks of the Apache Software Foundation in the United States and/or other countries, and are used with permission as of 2015.

Adobe Fixel

Posted on Feb 19, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Jun 21, 2015

Although this is a product from Adobe Labs, I thought others might be interested in this app. I think it shows what one can do using an iPad for manipulation of photos. I provide a brief overview in the web link. I had to choose a product (and Fixel is not on the list - hence Adobe AIR).

Adobe PaintCan app

Posted on Feb 15, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Jun 21, 2015

Adobe recently released an app for iPads called PaintCan. I put together a brief overview of the app. For those using iPads in their classro9oms, I think you (and your students) might find this a fun way to turn a photo into a painting. Had to select a product and PaintCan is too new to be in the list. Sigh.

The window's app floats hover your other apps. You can use it on Mac or PC, because it was made on Adobe AIR. Easy to install and use. Hope you enjoy!

Sources For Copyright Free Images For Students.

Posted on Apr 23, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Sep 14, 2014

This has always been an issue. Our schools Copyright License allows pretty well free reign for instructional/educational purposes, but the problem comes when you want to share a work beyond the classroom, like on a website, a publicly available newsletter even a school exhibition. This article is a great resource and students can be encouraged to get into the practice of using these images rather than just grabbing anything.

Using more than one video output (monitors, TVs, projectors, etc.) in Adobe AIR

Posted on Apr 13, 2014 by Jean-Philippe Côté Last Activity on Apr 13, 2014

These two tutorials witll help you publish an Adobe AIR project that makes use of more than one video output. This is often useful for interactive kiosks, physical computing installation, interactive exhibits or games, etc. The first one will help you stretch a single window across multiple monitors. This is useful in cases where you want to use a single window/stage. The second one will help you create two separate fullscreen windows and place them on 2 separate video outputs which may have different resolutions. Cheers!

This is an inspirational web resource, where resources can be shared, explored and viewed. In addition it is an interactive computer / art community.

Mobile application design and development

Posted on Feb 24, 2014 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Jun 18, 2015

Play a game, buy (and read) a book, check your e-mail, select a restaurant, pay your bills, or find your way to the party. This is just some of what you can do while on the move. With the proliferation of smarter and cheaper mobile devices, people’s expectations for using mobile phones and tablets are rising rapidly. But as mobile devices increasingly make our lives easier, they also present new challenges for designers and developers of interfaces and applications. For example, limited mobile screen space and navigation restrictions require careful project planning and design. This guide presents guidelines and best practices for mobile application design and development.

Physics in ActionScript with Nape

Posted on Feb 19, 2014 by Jean-Philippe Côté Last Activity on Feb 19, 2014

Nape is a lighter-weight 2D physics engine which will most likely satisfy all your needs while being much easier to use than Box2D. It is also usually faster than Box2D. It does have a few drawbacks but, overall, I highly recommend you try it out. During this tutorial, you will learn how to create the following very simple physics world. It comprises a floor (just below the bottom) and beach balls that bounce on it and each other.

Basic Math Cheat Sheet for ActionScript Programmers

Posted on Feb 19, 2014 by Jean-Philippe Côté Last Activity on May 24, 2014

My students do not necessarily have a strong background in mathematics. When the time comes for them to animate objects, pick out random values or manipulate hex colors using ActionScript, many are just overwhelmed. That’s why I put together this cheat sheet as a handout for them. It very briefly covers the following areas : Coordinates system (x, y)Angles (degrees, radians and the conversion between the two)Basic trigonometry for distance, angle and position calculationRandom number generationBinary and hexadecimal notationsColor manipulation (with binary arithmetic)Operator precedence & associativityModular arithmeticVectors (for movement calculation)
