ActionScript 3.0 from the ground up

Colin Moock


2 January 2009

During 2008, Adobe sponsored a series of free, intensive days of training on ActionScript 3.0 by Colin Moock. Based on his best-selling book, Essential ActionScript 3.0 (O'Reilly, 2007), the popular event produced by FITC Design and Technology Events covered the fundamental skills developers need to program for Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR. Topics included object-oriented programming, classes, objects, variables, methods, packages, conditionals, loops, operators, functions, event handling, displaying things on screen, and compiling and running programs.


Following the tradition of Flex Camp and the on AIR Tour, this free lecture was an important part of Adobe's ongoing initiative to bring knowledge to the development community. Now you can download the booklet that attendees received (published by O'Reilly), which reviewed the day's major concepts.
