Although it wasn’t always the case, these days a good understanding of object oriented programming principles and the use of common design patterns are essential in order to become a successful Actionscript developer. When we’re working on projects, the Head First Design Patterns book is never far away – and one of the patterns that has been incredibly useful time and time again is the Abstract Factory and variations thereof, so I thought we’d dedicate a YouTube tutorial to it.
I’d love to hear about your own experiences in regards to object oriented programming in AS3 – please leave a comment!
The material in this blog post and in the video is an excerpt from our Advanced Actionscript 3 (Object Oriented Programming and Design Patterns) training course.
You can watch the video and read up on the details after the break.
