Where is a good place or a few good places to learn AS3 .. I have a lynda account.. But it doesnt teach anything in great detail for AS3 .. AS2 yes but not so much AS3 …
I figure maybe a learning thread… something that we can give a review on good books or lessons we have taken..
I never buy books, because I thought they were worthless for me and I only could learn by trying by myself. Anyway I won the book Essential AS3 by Colin moock and I can really recommmend it to you. I try to create something using help and tutorials and when I don’t understand some stuff, I look in the book and get detailed information on how to do stuff in multiple ways. I learned AS3 pretty quickly, for me now it’s just AS2 but more strict and some changes in the functions.
+1 For Colin Moock’s Essential ActionScript 3.0 book. When I was reading it, I kept thinking, “I wish I had this book when I was first starting to program”. I thought the way he explained Object Oriented Programming was excellent.
Quick background on me, I first learned to program using ActionScript before it had version numbers (2001). Since then I’ve expanded to other languages, but ActionScript is definitely my first love.
Personally, I thought his book was excellent for beginners and experienced programmers alike, but you may get a different responses from different people.
It may be helpful if you provided some background about what level of experience you are coming from.
