Back to school

As you can see, I’ve started a blog. I’ve also officially made the leap to ActionScript 3.0 for all my production. Some things I have noticed:


 
  • Your memory management needs to be fastidious to avoid memory leaks and weird behaviour (more on this later)
  • It feels more like a real programming language at last
  • It runs A LOT faster. Tell a client this, if they’ve got you maintaining some AS2 dead horse

I’ll be posting stuff I learn about AS3 that you should know as I go… so stay tuned.

The London Flash Platform Users Group is running a meetup tonight about (among other things) connecting and controlling Flash with the Nintendo Wii controller – how cool is that? For those that can’t make it down to the Cosmo Bar in Barbican, they are apparently broadcasting the event here.


 

…see you there!
