About the Author
Josh Noble is a consultant, freelance developer and Rich Internet Application designer, based in Brooklyn, New York. He's the lead author of O'Reilly's Flex 3 Cookbook (released May 2008).
As a graduate student, Joshua Noble studied interactive art, teaching himself programming and electronics using available resources on the internet. After school, he began teaching coding to art and design students interested in interactive design at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He found an acute need for a book that taught the technical aspects of programming and computing for interactive art and design as well as some of the theoretical and conceptual aspects of design interaction. He's worked extensively with each of the tools discussed in this book and has taught the subject at workshops, colleges, and to friends.
