In this 3-day course the Participants will discover the fundamentals of the ActionScript development language. This class also briefly covers working in Flash for Adobe AIR Application Development. The foundation for the course are the basics of creating an ActionScript  class. An ActionScript class is simply a text file that stores code externally to an editable Flash file.
