I just got a note from my local Flex User Group (yay silvafug!), saying that Colin Moock is giving several free full-day training courses on ActionScript 3.0. For more information, see www.adobeas3tour.com/. It looks like there are already dates for San Francisco (Oct. 27), Los Angeles (Nov. 5), and New York (Nov. 12), and other cities (without dates) are Chicago, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, Munich, Bangalore, and Sydney.
If you’re close to any of those cities, I recommend registering and checking it out. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Colin speak on several occasions and he is outstanding. Plus, if you haven’t checked out his latest book, “Essential ActionScript 3.0”, I highly recommend it. I’ve been reading through it at home and it is full of great information, tips, and tricks. For more information on this great (and “ILLUSTRATED” — according to Amazon.com) book, check it out at Amazon.com.
