Welcome to Adobe Flash ActionScript! I'm glad you've decided to try and learn ActionScript, it is truly a wonderful programming language with plenty of potential in the domain of interactive media.

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself, as teachers do. I am Raven Storm, a young Canadian programmer who has been working in ActionScript for over three years. I have plenty of free time that I've turned into a lot of experience. As an active member of the WikiMedia community, I would like to contribute in whatever way I can by creating this basic tutorial.

So let's get started, shall we?


Since ActionScript is a basic scripting language, there is no real need for any programming experience prior to this tutorial. Basic knowledge of HTML and computers in general are a plus!
