Just want to share and wonder to hear the way you have become a Flash Developer.
Myself, I was studding and developing system things using Visual C++ and C#. However, some day I was asked if actionscript was what I could do. I puzzled. I saw flash banners everywhere in the web, and it was quite interesting for me to enter the world of Macromedia Flash. Yeah, my first Flash experience was with Macromedia Flash MX 2004, I believe Adobe was just thinking about Macromedia acquisition then. As usual it’s really a shame for me now, when I’m looking at the code I wrote that time That’s when I wrote Tips for beginner actionscript developer
So here is my path:
VC++ -> C# -> Flash MX and AS -> Flash 8 and AS2 - Flex and AS3
