ActionScript 3 has completely changed the Flash development landscape. The power and performance is outstanding but there’s a lot to learn. This workshop is designed to get you up to speed quickly with the amazing new version of our favourite programming language.
We cover the fundamental changes in ActionScript 3, so you can learn the core changes and how to execute all basic functionality (such as loading external music, keep using your FlashVars, and parse through huge XML files) and start getting a handle on some of the new terms and concepts available in AS3. There are source files for each lesson so students leave with a complete set of AS3 sample files that teach all the core functional AS3 concepts, like playing video, display list manipulation and managing event bubbling. At the end of this course, students will know enough AS3 to complete many types of projects exploiting the amazing performance in the Flash Player 9. This is an amazingly effective way to get started in the brand new world of Flash power.
Students will receive a copy of all prepared notes, as well as dozens of sample source files.
To keep prices this low, this workshop is bring-your-own-laptop.
