FlashDevelop

FlashDevelop is my absolute favourite actionscript code editor. It has great code hinting for actionscript and some shortcuts so you don’t need to type so much code yourself.

Installing Sublime Text 2 on Ubuntu (Update)

Sublime Text 2

Well it’s been quite some time since my last blog post. I’ve been really busy with a lot of stuff as well as going on holiday :)

Anyway this week I thought I would install Ubuntu and try and get some apps setup that I just can’t live without. One of the programs that I have been using a lot recently and really really love is Sublime Text 2. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. It really makes my programming life easier.

Hello world!

Hi everyone,.

Allow myself to introduce…myself. My name is Ed Moore. I am a Flash and Web developer originally from Australia, however I live and work in the small city/state/country of Singapore. I currently work at an advertising firm doing a range of different projects, with both flash and html.

My main aim of this blog is to provide information as well as some tutorials on a range of different topics in web development, including, html 5, css 3, javascript, jQuery, flash and actionscript. My plan is to also create some video tutorials down the line as I am really a visual learner, however I will try and provide a written “transcript” of the tutorial as well.

If anyone has any topics that you would like me to talk about please let me know.
