Brilliant for PHP programmers looking to start with Flex and Actionscript,
This review is from: The Complete Guide to Flex 2 and ActionScript 3.0 (Paperback)
I need to completely overhaul a large web admin application which I'm responsible for writing. I really like the idea of Flex for separating the GUI components from the business logic and I'm going to use it for the overhaul. I'm a procedural PHP programmer (I know, it's my age!) and so I've been looking at OOP principles with PHP 5 so I'm really and OOP NOOB!
Anyway, I've just started into this book with no former knowledge of Actionscript and just an overview of OOP. It is an ideal book in this scenario as most other books and tutorials I've read do the "here's an XML file and here's a data grid showing the contents" but don't really show Action script alongside in any meaty way. I am completely delighted with this book as I can learn properly now, how the whole lot fits together. Anybody who's close to my scenario will find this book a gem, I highly recommend it. The writing is clear and you really start from first principles which is important for a more complete understanding of the system. Buy it!
