Well, I’ve been toying with the idea of speaking again at a meeting. I’ll be speaking at FiTC in Hollywood next month and recently changed my subject to “Making Things Move in AS3″, so I thought it might be nice to practice it in Boston first.
As some of you may know, I’m currently re-writing Foundation ActionScript Animation: Making Things Move, to upgrade it to ActionScript 3. It is really cool to apply the language to fun animation stuff like this, and it’s an application of the new language that there really isn’t a lot of information or tutorials on yet.
My plan is to walk through what you need to do to set up an AS3 environment with either the Flash 9 AS3 Preview, Flex Builder 2, or the free Flex 2 SDK, then a basic framework for doing animation, focusing on the changes in the language from AS2 to AS3."
