Hey, Are there any good introductory tutorials to flash/actionscript? I just got it and I want to get started right away. I am an experienced PHP/MYSQL programmer.
flashkit.com is a great place to start. but i highly recommend getting the book Flash MX Bible. I got it and within one week i had developed a flash website (if you want i'll show it to ya)

You obviously come from a programming background, I assume that you are looking to explore the possibilities of Flash MX as a GUI frontend.
Please don't PM me with questions.
Use the forums, that is what they are here for.
When I started learning Flash 5 I bought a bunch of books. But I haven't found one that has EVERYTHING I'd like to learn. Anyways, check out Instant Macromedia Flash 5 by Caldewelll and Wan. It's pretty good. Has a lot of ActionScript and you can use it w/Flash MX also. Another good book for beginners is Flash Studio Secrets by Thomas. But this one is pretty basic. It'll get you started though. All of these are pretty cheap since they work w/Flash 5, but it's the same thing (5 and MX), very few differences.

I'd definitely recommend actionscript.org
