I loved Flash. To celebrate the #Flashpocalypse, please indulge me for trip down memory lane. 🧵
Over fifteen years ago, my first programming gig was an internship at a company that built websites with Flash. A project I remember was the website for a large Dutch fashion chain.
I helped to get data from MySQL through an API built in PHP, which was read through ActionScript in Flash.
It was a convoluted system, but that was required to get data into Flash. In many ways it’s akin to what frontend apps are doing now (but we had a 100% custom interface).
