2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
Object-Oriented Programming with ActionScript takes you beyond the level of "neat" code tricks and teaches you how to architect and implement true Flash MX applications. You will also learn the programming theory needed to fully take advantage of the object-oriented nature of ActionScript.
Nearly a third of the book is focused on teaching you everything there is to know about one of the most powerful new features of Flash MX: components. The topics range from understanding and using components, to constructing custom components. This book also recognizes the uniqueness of ActionScript and clarifies the best practices when it comes to developing with it. The final third of the book teaches you the best methods for working with advanced-level ActionScript - from debugging to data structures to server-side interaction.
