Free ActionScript training
Adobe is offering Web developers the chance to attend a free ActionScript 3.0 training tour which starts in October and spans through 2008. Adobe says it will host training sessions for developers worldwide who use Adobe Flash, Flex, and AIR extensions and who have beginner to intermediate level programming skills. The training will be an intensive full day session led by Collin Moock covering topics like object-oriented programming, classes, objects, variables, methods, packages, conditionals, loops, operators, functions, error handling, event handling, display programming, compiling, and running programs. The tour is set to begin in San Francisco and will reach nine cities including Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and major design markets in Europe as well as Asia Pacific. Registration is required, but the training is free, according to Adobe.
