    If I may add another resource. Total training has released two DVD trainings on Flex 2.

    Does anyone know when the ActionScript 3.0 Dictionary or language reference will be available in print?

  • http://www.renaun.com Renaun Erickson

    Are you talking about the option to buy the Flex Doc’s in print form? I know of people already purchasing these. Can’t remember where the link is.

  • http://www.ericfeminella.com/blog Eric Feminella

    Yes, I haven’t been able to find the print version either. If you could refer me to where it could be purchased that would be great.

  • http://www.renaun.com Renaun Erickson

    It is mentioned here that you can purchase it on the online store. But then going to the online store I can not find the information:

    Here is the post that explain the situation:

    If I might plug my book, it just came out:

    Awesome list! Thanks!

    I’m looking forward to your text. You seem to be a very responsible person, and I hope that your text reflects that. I have blown lots of money on Flex videos and new Flex books, and all of them have glaring and very frustrating errors in them. I can forgive an error here and there – especially if they are corrected on the author’s site – but most of these ‘resources’ are beyond the pale. I know that I myself am not perfect and that this post probably has errors in it; but I’m not charging anyone for the experience of reading my tripe.

    Anyway, I hope that your text leads the way in both instruction and accuracy.
