Today’s announcement about the release of Adobe’s CS3 suite of tools, including a new IDE for Flash, got me highly motivated to divde into my Safari Rough Cut of Colin Moock’s ActionScript 3 book, as well as pick up where I meandered off in my Flex 2: Training from the Source book.
And then I thought to myself, “Wow, do these books take a while to get through.” That’s when my buddy Santi IM’d me about renting training videos from SmartFlix. SmartFlix has instructional DVDs on all sorts of things — like metalworking, soldering and other geek wonderment. But I was very happy to find two different DVDs from TotalTraining on Adobe Flex 2.
I’ll have a week to go through them, but that should be enough to kick my but into gear. If you’re like me and you want to play, but lack the time or the motivation to read even when you surround yourself with good materials, give SmartFlix a shot.
I’m really looking forward to their arrival. And thanks for the tip, Santi.
