Ok, here's my situation: I'm tutoring a 14yo homeschooled student with very little previous programming experience, and I'd like to teach her how to program. I think that Flash Actionscript 3 is a good resource for her to start out with, mostly because she seems to have an interest in game development.
I've decided that FlashDevelop, used alone, is the best interface for her to use, especially as she becomes more proficient in Flash. The trouble is, while I am an extremely competent Web programmer in other languages, I have no experience with Actionscript at all, and I can't find a good tutorial for her to use.
The tutorial doesn't need to have the algorithmical basics of programming, like the concept of loops, if statements, OOP, etc; I can teach her those. What I need is a tutorial that teaches Actionscript SYNTAX and walks you through the steps of game development in FlashDevelop. Once I have that, I can do everything else.
Can anyone help me?
