Free ActionScript 3.0 Training Day

Adobe and I have just announced the "Adobe ActionScript 3.0: From the Ground Up Tour", produced by FITC Design & Technology Events. It's a full day of free ActionScript 3.0 training being held in 10 cities around the world. Each venue has room for approximately 300 attendees, and the first three are already filling up, so if you want to attend be sure to register soon.

The day's course content is based on my latest book, Essential ActionScript 3.0, and is targeted primarily at intermediate ActionScript developers with some programming experience, but not much knowledge of objects and classes.

Full details and event registration are available at

Be sure you check who should attend before you register so you can be sure the course is right for you.

Hope to see some of you at the event!
