HYPE is a cre­at­ive cod­ing frame­work built on top of Action­Script 3. A major goal of HYPE is to allow new­comers to Flash and Action­Script to cre­at­ively play and express them­selves while they are learn­ing how to pro­gram. To get star­ted, the user needs only the most basic know­ledge of pro­gram­ming vari­ables, con­di­tion­als, loops, and func­tions, for example. As the user learns more about pro­gram­ming they can extend HYPE and thus grow their skills, while at the same time inspir­ing the next generation.
