So, my talk on ActionStep was accepted for the 2005 OSCON conference which is being held in Portland from August 1-5. Its a high honor to be accepted at this event, and I thank the program committee for selecting my talk. I will not disappoint. As to what ActionStep is...heh...its coming! ActionStep is an open-source (thus OSCON) component framework for Macromedia's Flash player that InfoEther is paying to develop. There is a lot of open-source momentum building in the Flash community and ActionStep's goal is to be one piece of the puzzle. Another significant piece is the MTASC ActionScript compiler which is freaking incredible and makes ActionStep possible. I will be posting more about ActionStep soon, and will be switching my CVS to the SourceForge project soon as well. Oh, and don't worry, Ruby is still my best friend...this ActionScript language is a necessary evil!
