Resources for Learning ActionScript 3.0 as a Professional Programmer



I will be teaching myself ActionScript 3.0. I’m a professional programmer with great knowledge of C++, C#, Objective-C and Java. Is there any good source for learning the language that doesn’t take a lot of space teaching the reader OOP and other beginner level information? More like “classes in ActionScript differs from classes in C++ in these regards …”. I’m looking for something like “C# for C++-developers”.





I’d recommend reading over Colin Moock’s “Essential ActionScript 3.0,” published by O’Reilly, to get familiar with the language. Either that, or Adobe’s “Programming ActionScript 3.0,” which is provided with the Flash or Flex IDE.

Beyond those, I’d recommend the ActionScript 3.0 Language Reference. Just keep that handy and you’ll eventually memorize the most common APIs.
