Presentation


Overview

Explore object-oriented programming in ActionScript 2.0 and discover patterns, tips and pitfalls.

ActionScript 2.0 is designed for building more robust and maintainable applications. With a syntax similar to Java and features borrowed from C#, it is well suited for complex application development.

This session will explore the new OOP features of the language, see how to migrate ActionScript 1.0 code into the new version, and cover topics such as the new event broadcasting model, common design patterns, best practices, and identify traps and pitfalls to avoid in application development.

This presentation is suitable for both ActionScript 1.0 developers who want to learn about migrating code to ActionScript 2.0, and for ActionScript 2.0 developers who would like to learn more advanced uses of the language, and also for developers from other OO language backgrounds to discover Flash’s programming language.
