The time has come to properly learn AS3

So there was me in between projects getting my feet wet with AS3 when i am told “We need to know AS3 for the next project!”.

So here we go…
Books i am currently reading.

I will probably post reviews on these books as i go through them and get and better understanding of AS3.

My method of reading has been to read through required topics in each book rather than the cover to cover method.

I have already posted some basic working examples already here on the blog that work with having your code on the timeline (AS2 method of coding). I have never done flash work before that involved classes and packages but from what i have read so far I can now look at my personal flash site and see the greater benefits of using/learning AS3.

The main reason for the blog entry more than anything else is so that i can look back in a couple of years and think about what i have learned from these books in this time and think how i have developed as an AS3 developer. Obviously i will be submitting AS3 examples over time to the blog.

    Actionscript Design Patterns is written bad I think…

    I recommen Gamma/Johnson/Helm “Design Patterns”. It’s much more understandable.
    Here is the link I found
