I don't know about the rest you out there but I have never used AS coding and need some help getting started... Is there anyone on here that may be able to help me with some resources. I have the basics down by using the web videos. Because I am using windows 7 and just got started all of my screans look different than the ones in the slides. I have been able to get to the coding platform.
I guess what I need help most on is the framwork of the app..
What code needs to be present to make the app..
What has to go first second and so on. This is really where i need help.

welcome to the world of actionscript! first i want to tell you to visit this page:
it is full of getting started guides and some samples. then after you go through that there is a developer guide and some API docs that can help you here:
then after you read all that your best bet would be to google stuff like "Actionscript 101" and it will give you links to great amount of tutorials. after you've gotten the basics down, you can look and search these forums to gain code experience for the actual playbook device. it uses the same code as adobe air platforms so everythting you read up until this point will apply. good luck!

the code signing doesnt happen until after you are done with your application. its all done via command line and you cannot use any of the standard gui tools (flash builder). have you already completed your application?

If you are using Flash Builder you may want to do some of the getting started tutorials and also look at Tour de Flex from Adobe. Those things really helped me a lot. The tutorials are good for learning the basics, but you probably won't want to do all of them since they are very long. Tour de Flex helped me to learn about the different components and objects, how to use them, and what they do. You may also want to pay attention to the code hints as you write your app in Flash Builder. They helped me overcome several problems.
As for the signing I can't help there since I am still having problems with it too, but since you are just starting on your app, what are you trying to package and sign? Even if you are succesful in signing now you will still have to sign again when you are done with your app.
