When I transferred from Sinclair Community College to Franklin University, I was told that I needed to take a basic of Flash class to start my Interactive Media Design degree. I had already been active in Flash, Silverlight, and Flex development for some time, and thought that there had to be a way to avoid such nonsense.
I called my adviser and he informed me that if I wanted to by-pass having to take it I should talk with the chair. The chair informed me that if I could create something that could show that I understood the basics of creating web/software interactions I could get transfer credit for the class. So I went to work on this, you can click the image above to go to the Silverlight portfolio on alexsablan.info.
