If you are a programmer, you shoud consider Flex instead. It's the same technology as Flash (produces SWFs), but programmer-oriented.

Here's a good tutorial:

Kongregate's 'Shootorials' are definitely 'newbie'-oriented, but I like them. Big plus is that you're making an actual game with these, instead of just a generic Flash project.

I started using AS3 a month ago and I posted a tutorial for it here.

Out of the stuff I wrote, I would say using FlashDevelop is the best tip. It's leagues ahead of the Flash CS4 editor and has some good features that will help you learn.

I thought Flex was web development oriented; what functionality does it have for OOP?

i also found Emanuele Feronato's blog to be a great resource. especally for physics related stuff.

Flex uses AS3, just like Flash, so they are the same OOP-wise. Both produce SWFs. The main difference between the two is that Flash is mainly timeline-based, whereas Flex is code-based. Flex’s IDE is FlexBuilder, which is based on Eclipse.

If you’ve been programming for a while, you have probably used Eclipse at some point. It’s a great IDE.

Yeah Eclipse is great, but it used the be the biggest memory 'prostitute' I've ever met. Is it still like that?

I have Vista32
And Eclipse 3.4.1
takes around 200 Megabytes with smallish Java project open.
Is that alot then?
Depends on the viewPoint....
