A new ActionScript 3.0 tutorial is just out, thanks to the awful weather we got here in Geneva…
Easier than expected!
This is an absolute must-know if you want to build Rich Internet Application IMHO.
You can find the video and the source directly on my dedicated AS3 page.
Finally, I found the time to make a new video tutorial about AS3:
How to send and receive values to/from a database with Flash CS3 and ActionScript 3.0. Using a server sided script (in this example php).
Basically it will do simply what you could do so hardly with AJAX: asynchronous request.
I used Captivate this time and I hope it will be more easy to understand and to learn at your own pace. You can see the new video tutorials on my AS3 page.
As usual you can also found the source (php, fla, as).
By the way I want to thanks all of you who send me email about those video tutorials, I always appreciate it
I was reading the post from Google Webmaster Central (link via FlashEnabled), about the best uses of Flash.
So I guess until Google can understand Flash we mustn’t ask ourselves too much useless questions, simply use the best method: JS!
Anyway, even Google use Flash and AJAX, have anyone tried to use Google Analytics without JS enabled: it’s simply not working (and there is not even a noscript tag …), which simply bring us to this simple conclusion, not all your Flash content need to be understood by Google.
Had anyone been out of Google by using the Div replacement?
Since the first time I’ve heard about Papervision I’ve always been stunned by the demo provided.
Today is a great day as they are going live for their Public Beta.
Papervision3D moves from private testing to a full public beta.
Everybody is welcome to download and start playing with it. We believe you will find it very easy to use and to integrate into your Flash 8, Flash CS3 and Flex projects.
It is released under the MIT Open Source license, which means it is absolutely free for any commercial use.
So now I’m sure I’ll be even more amazed by all the demos that are going to spread on the Flashosphere.
Getting started and all information from the Papervision blog
