Should we start learning Javascript once again?

4 actionscript,as3,flash  |   July 7, 2009  |     1154

Hi Everyone,

with HTML 5 being adopted by more and more browsers out there, with DailyMotion releasing an HTML5 version of the movie profile page, and YouTube doing the same; there comes a question: should I get back to learning Javascript?

The posts on the subject abound all over the internet:

HTML 5 versus Flash / Flex

Adobe was heard saying:

It might be a decade before HTML 5 sees standardization across the number of browsers that are going to be out there (…)

Right.. I think it will take 2 years. I think in 2 years, you better get really good with the Google Web Toolkit if you want to be on the cutting edge. Otherwise, you can wait 4-5 years. And who will save our jobs: Microsoft. By being the shittiest browser out there, Internet Explorer will help keep the value of actionscript knowledge high for atleast another 2 years.

That is my take. What is yours?

🙂

Martin

    Salut Martin,

    durant ta formation, tu disais que tu n’avais pas trouver de manière d’embedder les glyphes particuliers avec les fonts. Il est possible maintenant avec Flash CS 4 (j’imagine que tu dois le savoir… , au cas oĂą que non voilĂ ) : http://gotoandlearn.com/play?id=102

    Sinon, il est possible de le faire avec Adobe CS3, mais en exportant un swf avec Flex le script ci-dessous, et en de le télécharger de la même manière que quand tu load un swf avec la font.

    public class MesFonts extends Sprite {
    [Embed(
    systemFont=’Tahoma’,
    fontName=”mafont”,
    mimeType=’application/x-font’,
    fontStyle=”italic”,
    unicodeRange=”U+0041-U+0048″ // la ou les plages de caracteres
    )
    ]
    public static var fontItalic:Class;

    }

    VoilĂ  !

    HTML5 is picking up steam quick, but I think it will be a while before it is doing some of the more advanced Flash features. On top of that, there’s the whole Safari vs Firefox interpretation of HTML5 video: Mozilla is using the open source codec and Apple is using the h264 flavor. the browser independent nature of Flash will help keep it afloat for some time 🙂
