The Next meeting at the Hawaii Flash User Group will be on “Setting up a flash development environment with FDT”

This talk will feature Micheal Plank who is a technology evangelist and software developer at Powerflasher, Germany’s largest multimedia agency specialising in Flash.

Michael has been hooked on creating interactive applications with Flash since version 4.

If you are coding in ActionScript 3.0, I am sure that you have heard of FDT, or the Flash Development Tool, which is a plugin for the Eclipse editor,  meant to speed up
your actioscript development time.

FDT brings many high level development features, such as

  • Code Templates
  • Quick Fixes
  • Organize Imports
  • Code Formating
  • Code Completion
  • Refactoring (rename and move)
  • AS Docs
  • AS 3

Will try to  cover everything from setting up the environment, and learning about Eclipse and ANT. Then will be discussing setting up a Flash Project in FDT, and building a project from the ground up.

Afterwards, the discussion will be  how to set up a work-flow between FDT and the Flash IDE! The point is you use the Flash IDE for designing, but you code in FDT!
There will FDT stickers & brochures to give away (thanks for Bruno Fonzi)

Eventhough this is an introduction to using FDT most of the discussion will be on using the features of FDT, and not too much details on Eclipse or ANT.
If you have any questions about installing FDT or ANT, please contact me.

This is an Event Not to be Missed!
