Flash Course 3: Actionscript

When I decided to write this article, I concluded that I wouldn’t try to teach Flash through this articles.

Don't let the title mislead you: there will be no learning of Actionscript here. There are lots of other sites that are better suited for that, like Flash Kit or Actionscript.org. However, I think that what I have to offer is equally as valuable. I’ll attempt to explain why understanding the concept of Actionscript can make you a dangerous designer or developer, especially if you understand and practice the separation of content, presentation, and behavior.
