[OT] Good Flash Training for Programmers?

I’m hoping to tap the collective intelligence here…

I’m a Rails programmer looking for some Flash training. Ideally it
would be something of as high quality as a Pragmatic Studio class…
I’m not a designer by trade but I’d like to learn Adobe’s tools and
all the jive that goes with it.

Any suggestions? Flash and the upcoming Apollo platform seem to be
even more of a standard skill set going forward, especially if new
platforms like the iPhone support it.

Thanks,
Hunter

Thanks for the clarification

They have several Flash training titles at www.lynda.com.

I think adobe’s flex is “open source” or the compiler is… I’m not to sure…

Flex isn’t open source, but it works well with Rails and the SDK is
free (as in beer).

A good place to start is http://flexonrails.net/. (I won’t plug my
book, but google for “flex rails book” if you’re curious… :slight_smile:

there are several way to use flash.
I haven’t looked at the lynda.com for flash but have used them for
other and enjoyed them. for a flash 101 i used a friends of ed book
for flash 5. it was a good starting point.

Then you can get into animation, video, or RIA’s
If you are interested in RIA’s then check out adobbe’s flex or
openlaszlo (opensource).
