I always loved programming. In the days when Flash was all the rage, I spent hours and hours writing Actionscript: making page transitions as smooth as possible. But alas, all good things come to an end and Flash is no exception. After Steve Jobs rant about Flash it gradually disappeared from the internet. And with Flash, my daily practice in programming disappeared as well. Missing code, I tried Java for a while but never had as much fun with it as I had with Actionscript. I also tried Arduino, and although that was fun, it wasn't very good in what I was looking for in a programming language: making stuff happen on screen.
