Tours are starting to be all the rage with Adobe (and others). With the launch of CS3 Adobe did a conference tour, and of course there’s the onAIR bus tour that’s making it’s way around the country promoting AIR.
Now, if you or someone you know is a Flash designer with almost-none-to-basic ActionScript experience, and you want to learn ActionScript from the established master, you can do it for free. Adobe is sponsoring a free, one-day ActionScript training course given by Colin Moock that’s traveling around the U.S. (and eventually the world) starting in October 2007.
They’re calling it ”Colin Moock’s ActionScript 3.0: From the Ground Up Tour.” And you shouldn’t feel intimidated if you are just getting started with ActionScript – the site explicitly says it’s not for advanced developers, so if you’re just getting going (i.e. you’ve done some frame scripts but not anything with classes) you should be in your element.
Currently it looks like there are stops scheduled in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City. Even if you don’t live in one of those areas, think of it this way – for only the price of travel you’re getting an awesome training experience.
