I was an ActionScript developer, does that count?


Me too. I even went to the MAX conference in Salt Lake City. I built an online game show in Flash/ActionScript back in 2001. At a certain point the AS runtime would garbage collect my class definitions and then nothing would work. We worked around it by forcing a browser refresh after the end of each game to give the user a fresh runtime.


Definitely counts.

My first gig was damage control from the last ActionScript developer and boy howdy, it gave me plenty of cautionary tales of what not to do.



ActionScript, where a vector is a fixed-size array, and an array is always a vector. Shudders
