A new version of the AS best practices guide has been posted on the developer center. It’s mostly what you can find in the documentation, but reformatted and relinked. The Flash 8 ActionScript version has also been seriously trimmed from the 2004 version (much of the Flash-centric best practices will be in an upcoming Flash Best Practices).
Check “ActionScript 2.0 Best Practices” out here:
In PDF format: http://www.helpexamples.com/pdf/actionscript2bp.pdf
In your Help panel:[i] [b]Learning ActionScript 2.0 in Flash > Best Practices and Coding Conventions for ActionScript 2.0[/b] [/i]
Any suggestions/additions welcome! Stay tuned for the Flash 8 Best Practices guide.
