Hour 3. Learning to Program

Programming is both a science and an art. You will need both knowledge of the programming language's syntax and a lot of creativity because there is rarely only one way to write a program. Ten different programmers will write 10 different programs to accomplish the same task.

As you learn ActionScript, you will develop your own style. At first, you will probably pick up the style that I use in this book. But later this will slowly develop as you adapt techniques you invent yourself.

Some basic programming concepts hold true for just about every programming language. Let's review those concepts in this hour before learning the specifics of how they are implemented in Flash.

In this hour, you will:

  • Understand how computers think

  • Find out what elements make up a program

  • Learn about variables

  • See how conditions and loops make programs flow

  • Learn how to break a large problem into smaller parts

  • Find out how to write bug-free code
