flash mx actionscript lecture video's first lecture video is now available for purchase. entitled "Flash MX ActionScript Power Tour," the lecture ships on CD and costs US$19.99. here's a description of the lecture:

"Join Colin Moock, author of O'Reilly's "ActionScript: The Definitive Guide" for a power tour of the programming features first introduced in Flash MX. This session gets down and dirty into code, with a practical demonstration of dozens of ActionScript features. Perfect for intermediate to advanced developers who need a crash course on ActionScript's MX tools and capabilities. Beginners will find the content stimulating, but probably a little overwhelming."

Lecture notes are posted online here.

Note that the lecture was taped shortly after the release of Flash MX, so it refers to features in MX as "new" even though they've now been around for a while.

If you have any questions, let me know by posting comments here.

It sort of worked for me using Safari. I was able to fill out the form and make the purchase but after I hit submit, Safari crashed. I received the confirmation email, so the order went through ok, but I don't know why the browser crashed. Cheesy order page.

Just went to purchase the CD. But........... no can do on my G4 running OS X with either Safari, MSIE or Netscape. Can't get past the "state" bug on the shopping cart. And now I see (above) that shipping is $14.50! I don't think so.

I just finished watching hour one! What a great CD. Packed with easy to follow code, worth every penny. WIsh I would have had this back when I first learned Action Script. Thanks again, Ill be looking for your next one! oh yea, get a better video recording next time, its a bit rough.

What's with the $14.50 shipping for the CD? It makes the price of the whole thing almost $43 Cnd. I'd like to know why it's so expensive to ship - it certainly makes one hesitate to purchase your lecture.
