Last Friday I delivered a pre-launch briefing to UK journalists on today’s announcements around new Flash Platform tooling, specifically the beta release of Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder. In addition, we invited web design and development agency howard/baines to talk about their experiences using the pre-beta version of the tools to create a rich Internet application. Both these sessions were recorded, so I thought I’d post them here.
The first video provides a high level overview of Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder, followed by a demonstration of building the Employee Directory application – this might be useful if you’re looking to get up to speed on the announcements and want to see the designer/developer workflow between the tools in action:

In the second video, Clive Howard and Jeremy Baines talk about the communication challenges normally faced when working on a project and how, using Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder, they were able to rapidly prototype and build a rich Internet application deployed to Flash Player.
