This the most amazing use of Web technologies by Google and the best part is that this animation is not FLASH . I wish they would release the Source Code to this .
The Animated Doodle was created by Cartoonist Ryan Woodward , and here is the official Video .
I recently attended a 2 Symposiums at some colleges whose name I don’t want to mention, I was a participant in Web Designing Competition in both . In the first one , I really did not plan , I just made a mash up with jQuery , but in the Second one, I put some effort into planning and I designed a really cool website with jQuery UI , I deserved at least a 2nd prize , but my tough luck would have it , I didn’t win anything !
I noticed then winners of both the competitions were students who created something very basic with Flash , My creating was comparatively complex and had more features , but Students who did Flash got real preference.
I set out to Solve this , I Applied to the program that adobe was offering Flex Builder 4 for free to students ,and I got a reply with a free serial Key .
Then I set out to Learn Flash under flex SDK 4.1.
This was a bit more difficult than I Thought , but I Finally managed to Understand MxML and Action Script .
Being a guy who Likes Open Source stuff , I have made the source code available for free.
Just Right Click –> View Source
In view source mode you get to see the source code and also to download a Zip version .
A nice Feature that is easily built with Flex Builder .
I was surprised to Learn How simple Action Script really is .
MxML on the other hand is pure XML , but its very easy with Autocomplete Enabled.
So the First Step of My Flash Learning Process is officially complete.
Now I can officially add this to my Resume` .
