The first few posts in this series will be an extended version of AS3 101, The First ActionScript I Ever Learned. If you feel you are able to jump in at that post and move forward than you will be able skip a lot of extra reading. These first few posts should enable someone with a very little to no knowledge of Flash itself to start building projects in AS3.

The most basic script element is the variable. It is best to describe it with an example.
