I am your fresh out of college developer, have a new job developing and administrating a site for a corporation (a small one) however, I just wanted to get some feed back from the pros on one major question facing devellopers, is developing your site in Flash something we do because we can or because it is the best way to do things??? In other words, Is developing in Flash Practial??

Thanks :)

Well, now that all depends! (I hate that phrase, don't you!)

Actually, there are different reasons for using Flash, but to me the greatest is that it creates a visually stunning/immersive experience for the user.
To define racticality, you have to look at the desired results first.
If your desired results are to quickly display information, or provide a research tool, Flash probably is just a hinderance. If the desire is to provide captivating experience, or a custom interface, (along with many other uses/scenarios) then Flash is definitely a practical, versatile tool.

Thoughts may very on this subject, but those are mine. :)
