1999–2006
Wrote a handful of small games, was great until Adobe tried to turned it into Java
1999–2002
Was a quite capable language, but other bugs in the Flash runtime at the time drove me crazy

AS3: a few neat ideas crushed to death under a mountain of crappy Adobe frameworks, an unusable debugger and 1990s-era IDE.

I tried. I failed.

2002–2006
Got out of Flash around the time AS3 surfaced.
2002–2004
Write some ugly stuff
2002–2007
Enjoyed this language very much.. I built wonderful Flash games and websites.
2002–2006
2003–2005
I loved how I could some animation with it in Flash. Oh colors and shapes!! It got me closer to my QBasic days...
2003–2006
I was inspired by the work of Joshua Davis and I really enjoyed the combination of Actionscript/Flash for some time. I tried learning OOP via actionscript but that didn't go very well.

Once was extremely powerful and useful. Now is a major hassle and hardly ever necessary. Adobe really messed it up.
2005–2008
2005–2006
Read a little, got bored, stopped.
2005–2006
2006
Wrote an animated menu for a Flash presentation. Before I hated Flash.
2006
I took one Flash design class in college. It was fun, but not my cup of tea.
2007–2008

University assignment in Flash... long time ago, not missing it.

Fun, especially when working with good graphic artists providing all the photoshop/illustrator work... I wrote a Dutch learning course for 12 years old with this.

Briefly encountered for uni project. Found the entire Flash environment to be absolutely hideous. Ew.
2008–2009
Had to keep head down and eyes off the awful UI in order to get the job done. Like waking up with a hangover and Javascript's ugly cousin.
2008
Wrote an Actionscript/Flex charting app that spoke to an XML backend. It seemed more painful than it needed to be and documentation was horrible.

Unfortunately we used version 2, another University assignment. Flash ... shudder.

I just started learning AS for the explicit purpose of writing Flash games. It's great for compiling directly to a SWF file. It's not so great otherwise.

WHEN I WORKED WITH IT, IT WAS NEARLY 100% IDENTICAL TO JAVASCRIPT.
I've worked with it for a week or so. It's almost identical to JavaScript in practice.
