OOP and Flash
Date and Time
January 30, 2012 06:00 PM - 07:00 PM (GMT-5 Eastern Time US & Canada)
OOP stands for Object-Oriented Programming. When you are coding big projects you will have hundreds (even thousands) of lines of code and it can get very unorganized. This is where OOP comes in. You can make classes, which are external .as files (ActionScript files) and import them into your project. You can then use the methods and properties in that class.
Also, instead of having to write the same code over and over again you could make a class containing that code. Then whenever that code is needed instead of having to write it all you can just call it from the class.
The speaker Ben Fhala The owner of EverythingFLA.com is joining us this month to talk about OOP in a very pragmatic manor. Instead of focusing on the details this session will be focused on the ideas behind OOP and how they can translate into the way you think as a developer. This session is ideal for people that have no experience coding in OOP or have limited experience. Ben would love to get questions and concerns you have in advance and will try to build the session.
