    How can a beginner learn Action Script?

      I have a no technical training, yet I have been addicted to Flash for 2 years.  How can I learn really Action Script?  (Should I bother?)

          whether you should bother is a good question.

           

          i would think you would be better off learning javascript if you're thinking 10-40 years from now.  javascript's been around longer and looks like it will remain longer than actionscript.

           

          on the other hand, actionscript and javascript are very similar so if you want to use flash the learning you gain will be largely applicable to javascript.

           

          to learn actionscript, use the adobe help files and senocular's tutorials (senocular.com).
