Michael James Williams is the technical editor for Activetuts+. He is a freelance Flash developer. And he is also a published author.

Michael’s book Facebook Graph API Development with Flash came out several months ago, and I’ve been meaning to mention it here ever since. On his blog, I Help People Make Flash Games, he briefly describes what it was like to write the book, and what the book is about:

Early last year, I signed a book deal with Packt Publishing. I spent most of 2010 working on it, and it’s finally finished, published, and on the shelves.

The book is a beginner’s guide to creating Flash Facebook applications and games. That includes apps like Graffiti and games FarmVille, which are designed to be played entirely within Facebook, as well Flash projects hosted outside Facebook that tap in to the user’s Facebook profile and friends list to give a more personalised experience.

Flash Website Review #1

2011

Hello community members and blog readers. A new series has made its way to the envato blog. I am one of its authors, Aw_Shucks and I’m an active member of the Envato community, based primarily at ActiveDen. My counterpart, BigZ who is also an ActiveDen author, will be working with me in order to produce this new series. What will this new series be about, you may ask? Well, in short our series will be about interactive sites around the web that BigZ and I will be reviewing. The point of the series is to bring to your attention current trends and innovative concepts of interactive websites and that we hope to inspire you to make a move towards making better files.

The first entry of our series is a sort of “test type”, which is usually the next stage of development after that of the prototype. (The first stage was planning. Then the “prototype” came by creating a working presentation ). But I’m sure that we’ll be changing a few things so as to improve the quality and message of our posts. So be ready to see something a little different and better as we post more throughout the series. With this in mind we introduce our first entry in the envato blog. We hope you like it.

We’re giving away two tickets to the Flash Gaming Summit, the hottest game developing conference of the year!

Some of the sessions just blew my mind and got me really motivated to build more games. Whether you win a ticket here or not, I strongly suggest you go!
