As part of my work as an ‘interaction designer’ I have found that in I’m having to do a lot of interactive prototypes and have found flash as the most versatile tool for development. While I already had some ActionScript experience I found that I had reached a wall with my coding.
I have found these three books a great addition to any flash designer, If you can afford it, get it all. But if you can’t I could properly loose the design patterns but its a good long term investment in long term code re usability.
This is a great book that covers EVERYTHING and all of the smaller detials of the ActionScripit Classes. If you were to only get one book, I would get this one.
This book has loads of useful code snippets. This is definitely one to have by the best for when you need to do a specific task.
This book is written more towards developers, but I have found it good practice to design code in a reusable and structured manor.
