Portal In-Flight Projects, Dynamic ActionScript 3.0
In a nutshell, for project status presentations between the powers that be, my manager was using a static PowerPoint presentation slide that looked like a funnel with a bunch of circles drawn out manually to display the project status for any work that was coming down the pipe. The business liked his approach and wanted the other managers in IT to adopt the same concept. The problem was that no one had the time to manually & individually do the same thing, so there was a need to make the entire thing a dynamic application that would do all the UI heavy lifting: hooked in to the corporate project database.
In comes Flash and ActionScript 3.0 to the rescue. I designed and programmed everything on the Flash side. I also defined the XML schema. Once I had all of the animation & programming working with dummy data, one of our .NET programmers wrote the engine for the dynamically generated XML file.
This was definitely a fun and unique project. This is not a fully functional example since you can't swap XML feeds/it's not hooked to any of the dynamic XML stuff, but you can still get the idea from the dummy data presentation.
