Learn ActionScript for Flash Development

New tutorial
Tuesday 4 October 2011.

If you want to program Adobe Flash applications you’ll need to understand ActionScript.

The good news is that you can learn ActionScript programming from the ground up in my new series for Flash & Flex Developer’s Magazine. The magazine is a free PDF download so why not go and get a copy today...! :-)

    Huw- Do you have any comment on Google releasing their Dart programming language? The reason I think you might take interest in it is that it has the features of Actionscript of full class object orientation, yet it can be translated into Javascript. It also adds the option of static typing. I think this could be a unifying language between Javascript and Actionscript.

      I don’t know enough about Dart to give an informed opinion. In principle it sounds a good idea but it may depend on whether a) it is really a huge advance over JavaScript and b) whether enough web developers are going to be prepared to embrace a new language. For now, I’ll bide my time and keep an eye on developments ... ;-)
