The implementation of a real-world education is a key asset to the foundation that Full Sail University has built our curriculum upon
Winter Park, FL (Vocus) September 19, 2009
Full Sail University (http://www.fullsail.edu ) is proud to announce that Web Design & Development Bachelor of Science Degree student, Bryan Berger, was recently selected as a finalist in the Application Development Category of the 2009 Adobe Design Achievement Awards for developing the application, zFlick (http://www.zflick.net ), a desktop Flickr application. Berger will be attending the awards ceremony held in Beijing, China at the end of October.
Having a passion for design and code, the 22 year-old Berger decided to attend Full Sail University and enrolled in the Web Design & Development Degree Program. This 21-month Bachelor of Science Degree educates students in the areas of industry-standard disciplines including: interface design and usability, web standards, Flash/ActionScript 3.0, client side scripting, server side scripting and mobile device deployment.
Created by Berger during the Deployment of Flash Projects course, the cross-platform application zFlick, enables users to bring Flickr to their desktops and works on the principle of providing users with the most unique and interesting images. Because the application was designed with an easy-to-use interface that contains numerous tools including: auto-updating, drag-n-drop saving, and direct access to the Flickr pages of each image, zFlick was selected by Adobe to appear on the Adobe AIR Marketplace website.
"The implementation of a real-world education is a key asset to the foundation that Full Sail University has built our curriculum upon," said Bill Bain, Program Director of Web Design and Development at Full Sail University. "We take pride in the ability to provide our students with the tools necessary to enhance their talents. Watching Bryan excel in the area of study that he loves is both an honor and a testament to the motivation and drive our students possess."
