Anyone around the Brighton UK Area that would like to have a chat about
such things? Maybe stretch as far as London for a bigger group. I would
really like to get to talk to some like minded flash programmers.

Thanks for forwarding that link!
I just wanted to add to that - if a person is serious about learning
design patterns, it *really* helps to get around a small group of other
folks and discuss each pattern in detail - especially in how it relates
to ActionScript development. Ali Mills and I worked with a group of Bay
Area developers over the past year and went through the Gang of Four
book twice. I thought that I had a pretty good comprehension before the
study group, but as it turned out - I was wrong! Even after reviewing
each pattern every week, we realized that it would be valuable to do
them all again.
Joshua Kerievsky (The author of Refactoring to Patterns) has a really
great site devoted to helping people organize just such a meeting:
I can't wait until more flash developers get into Patterns, Test-Driven
Development and agile processes!
BTW - Don't forget to check out the newly-released AsUnit XUL UI and
AsUnit 3.0 for ActionScript 3!
