Code, Compile, Debug and Deploy Faster
A great read for any AS3 developer
Pros: Concise, Easy to understand, Accurate
Best Uses: Intermediate, Novice, Student
Describe Yourself: Developer
I wish I had this book when I first started to code AS3, it gives a good review of some best practices to streamline your development workflow, from basic setup of the IDE (focused on Eclipse/FDT) to automatic compilation, deployment and publishing.
I love the fact that it includes instructions about integration with Source code management and issue tracking, too often these primordial aspects of a developer’s work are completely overlooked.
On the downside, a chapter dealing specifically with PlayBook development would have been welcome since AIR was the primary platform on this device, there are dedicated chapters covering Android and iOS though.
Overall its a great book, giving a concise and complete presentation on the subject, it is accessible (and recommended) to beginners, and more advanced devs will certainly find a handful of good tricks in there.

Welcome to our new site!
I finally registered my own .org domain on the Internet, to mark the event, I set up a new design for the site, there are still a few things to tweak, like social networking, a twitter feed, and I’d rather have links and all on the side than on the bottom, but all-in-all I like the new look.
I already finished migrating most of the old site’s contents to te new one, I think I will reorganise pages as more products are coming, with KiPass to be released soon on the PlayBook, and some experiments on the Arduino.
Stay tuned and I hope you’ll enjoy our new home!
