Explorations with ActionScript 3
ctionScript 3 is powerful. But, much of it's power has been focused on creating rich internet applications rather than on more traditional uses of Flash such as interactives, games, and art. The good news is that ActionScript 3 and the Flash 9 player bring a lot to the party for even non-RIA applications.
This session will explore how ActionScript 3 helps make all kind of Flash development faster, more interactive, and potentially even more beautiful.
