Presentation


Overview

Enough excuses. AS3’s been out for over two years. You know, deep down inside, you hold a pathological hatred of AS2, or even, god forbid, AS1 (don’t even talk to me if you’re still using TellTarget). It’s time to move on.

Thankfully Flash CS4 didn’t include a new version of ActionScript, so there’s still time to get up to speed. ActionScript 3 is provides a series of truly amazing benefits in power, performance and workflow, but it can be just a bit confusing if you’re used to the old way of doing things.

In this talk, R Blank attempts to decipher some of the basic differences of getting things done in AS3. In a series of practically focused lessons, R will provide the explanations and code samples that will get you up and running with AS3 — and help you understand a bit more of what you’ve been doing if you’re already playing around. R will also show of the cool new powers that you can exploit with AS3 in Flash Player 10. And you’ll leave with a great set of source files.

Audience:

AS1/2 hybrid and moderate coders who are tri-curious.

Attain:

An improved understanding of the basic changes to the ActionScript language, as well as sample code that will help attendees understand the new landscape.
