 ## How it works
-*This material will be added soon.*
+Because both ActionScript and JavaScript are based on the same language, ECMAScript, most
code you write in AS translates well to JS. One significant difference is that AS uses the
concepts of classes and objects to structure how your code functions, while pure JavaScript
does not have those concepts. When you get ready to compile and run your application, the
Royale compiler translates AS-specific code into JS code organized into pseudo-classes, which
then run just fine in a JavaScript world.
+That takes care of pretty much everything except the user interface. For that, Royale provides
a set of UI containers and controls that do the work that the pure Flex containers and controls
required the Flash engine to do.
 ## Status
 Adobe Royale 0.9.0 was released in January, 2018. It is roughly of beta quality. The latest
release is always available on the *Download* tab of this site.
