I've been searching for tutorials for AS3, but it seems Google Search interprets "AS3" as "Flash" and gives me undesired content. Even after changing it to ActionScript 3, it still seems every tutorial is based off of some program, usually Flash CS3 (I think that's what it's called) and not just the language itself. Using FlashDevelop, I can't find much help in them since they seem to do less writing code than anything else.
Honestly, I just want to learn how to do extremely basic things, such as "make a sprite show up", but I can't figure out the system behind doing that because it's always related to some program.
So, do you know of any place that has a few tutorials for AS3 basics, such as making sprites and learning the syntax fully?
The official site isn't much help, either...
