The biggest change in ActionScript 2.0: object orientation. As a Flash content creator, you care why? Because objects make it easier to plan projects, and write reliable, testable, reusable, maintainable code. Colin Moock is passionate about objects, and his new book will help you apply them in all your Flash work.
Moock assumes absolutely no object knowledge (though a little ActionScript experience will help). All the basics are here: classes, objects, methods, inheritance, and so on. But there’s a lot more -- all focused on your unique needs as a Flash developer. How to organize UI components and movie clips in your object-oriented project. How to split up projects with other developers on your team. The best ways to broadcast events.
You could keep writing old-fashioned timeline apps forever. But if you want the power Macromedia put into ActionScript 2.0, get this book. Bill Camarda
