Right now, I’ve settled on trying to learn Flex 2 and Actionscript 3. I bought Charles Brown’s book on Flex 2 and AS3, and plan on working through it over the next few weeks. I don’t think that I can come up with a “business use” for either of these, so it’ll probably be very slow going.Â If our client would upgrade to Flash player 9,they just now upgraded to 8, then the situation would be better – I feel like I’m really falling behind not learning AS3 right now. But if I can’t use it at work, I don’t have much free time at home to learn it.
I feel like I could pick up AJAX pretty easily, since I’ve got a lot of experience with JS and CSS in the past, I’ll try to pick that up in the fall.
