8.8. Onward!

Well, we've come pretty far. The end of this chapter marks a milestone -- it ends our examination of the ActionScript statements. That means we have variables, data, datatypes, expressions, operators, and statements under our belt. These components of the language are the foundation of all scripts. If you've read and understood everything up to this point, or at least most of it, you can officially claim that you're able to "speak" ActionScript.

In the remainder of Part I, "ActionScript Fundamentals", we'll work on making our conversations more eloquent and our commands more powerful. We'll consider the advanced topics of how to make code portable, how to create events that initiate the execution of our code, how to manage complex data, and how to manipulate movie clips programmatically. These techniques will help us build more advanced applied examples.
