What Exactly Is It?
The Flashtuts+ ActionScript 3.0 Coding Conventions Guide will set out standard rules and practices for writing ActionScript. From file structure and code formatting to workflow and application usage. It will be written by the readers, for the readers and all ideas are welcome. When it's complete, we'll decide on the most effective way of publishing the information (.pdf, series of web pages) whatever we decide; your opinion counts!
What's important is that by collaborating, we'll put together something useful and unique for Flash users on the web.
