Learning ActionScript 3.0 for Designers (Session)    

This session is aimed at Flash designers and ActionScript beginners who haven't yet made the jump to AS3. Using a "whole-brain" approach, the session will look at design-centric views of the development process while highlighting the consistency and structural changes that make AS3 so powerful. Rather than relying solely on talking points, you'll follow "Learning Curve Larry" through the creation of a simple AS3 project. Included will be sections on how to get started, the display list, the new event model, migration issues, ways in which designers and programmers can more easily work together, and more.
