Description: An Introduction to Programming with ActionScript 3.0 provides a CS-1 level introduction to computer programming by employing interactive visual environments such as games and web pages. It explores applications that involve movement, sound, graphics, and interactivity using Flash ActionScript 3.0. This flash environment presents key object-oriented programming concepts that are relevant to the world of computers seen daily in multimedia rich web pages, games, and applications.Designed for first semester programing students, this text satisifies ACM guidleines for a first course in programming for a computer science curriculum (CS-1) and covers all of the standard topics required for any CS-1 programming course: data types, selective and iterative control structures, functions, arrays, and classes. In addition, it includes the basics of ActionScript's powerful ability to construct complex and interactive animations using graphics and sounds. The multimedia nature of this text makes it ideal for those students interested in building engaging internet applications, games, and working with multimedia in general.Features:- Examines and explores both the visual side of Flash and the programming side as it relates to ActionScript- Satisifies the ACM guidelines for a first course in programming for a computer science curriculum (CS-1)- Includes case studies that showcase the process of design and implementation of relevant applications. Each case study begins with a visual storyboard design and a problem analysis. The implementation is preceded by an exploration of data objects and functionality.- Uses graphics and animation to illustrate programming constructs- Provides a concept-oriented approach, meaning that the concepts learned can be easily transferred to other languages such as Visual C++, Java, and C#- Contains a variety of programming projects and end of chapter problems- Accompanied by a CD-ROM containing all the examples from the textThe software required for this text is Adobe Flash CS3 or later versions
