Video: Approaching Flash 5

Advanced Flash 5: Introduction to ActionScripting with Josh Ulm and Garo Green is an instructional workshop presenting the radically new object-oriented scripting mode introduced by Macromedia Flash 5. This workshop offers completely new and original exercises developed specifically to teach the fundamentals of object-oriented programming inside of Flash. While traditional scripting methods are still accessible in Flash 5, adopting object-oriented methods will significantly change the way you develop Flash movies. Object-oriented programming will produce movies that are smaller, faster, more powerful and extensible. This workshop breaks ActionScripting down into easy-to-understand fundamental concepts, so Flash developers can harness the power and complexity of Flash without relying on complicated single-use tricks.
