Rich Internet Applications (RIA) are “Web applications that have the features and functionality of traditional desktop applications. RIAs typically transfer the processing necessary for the user interface to the Web client but keep the bulk of the data (i.e., maintaining the state of the program, the data etc) back on the application server” (Wikipedia).
The course will focus on: building RIA using ActionScript 3.0; creating classes; using flexible elements such as Flash UI (User Interface) components; connection to a server; and accessing data using XML (Extensible Markup Language), E4X (ECMAScript for XML) and RSS (Really Simple Syndication).
