As I'm currently preparing my workshop for the shockwards event I'm heavily involved in building my own presentation app with Flash. Of course the intention is to build a modular system that can be reused and extended over the time. It will probably not be full featured until friday, but I've already got a template system, tasteful transisitons and a smooth navigation.
With Flash 5 it was perhaps a bit difficult to build a reusable presentation engine, but now with Flash MX I think that no flashcoder of honour should ever touch Powerpoint again.
Powerpoint is a great polarisator - there are people who hate it and there are people who love it. There is a very nice read by Nicholas Allen: Death By PowerPoint that I've just enjoyed. And "Click to add title" is a Ping-Pong style game for Powerpoint Challengers...
Okay, back to work.Posted at November 06, 2002 12:46 AM | Further reading
