Adobe ActionScript Flash Training Course Intermediate

Flash CS3 ActionScript 3 offers significant leaps over its predecessor, ActionScript 2. With the new version of ActionScript, developers will find a faster runtime environment, better debugging, a consistent method for handling events, and an improved framework of classes for development.

In this training course we will explore best practices when developing rich Flash applications, review important concepts such as syntax, object oriented programming, animating with ActionScript, and controlling objects using the keyboard.

We will also take a detailed look at several classes in the ActionScript 3 class library. Each of these classes will allow us to quickly add rich and robust functionality to our Flash applications. Once you complete the training day, you will have a strong understanding of ActionScript 3 and develop a Flash version of the popular game Asteroids.

Course Duration: 3 Days
