Over the history of this company I worked heavily with Actionscript (2.0 and 3.0), PHP, ASP, Python, SQL databases, Flash Remoting technology, Adobe Flex, Adobe AIR, RED5, Javascript, and Java. I also worked quite heavily on a project to create the first Flash Actionscript API for R.E.T.S MLS systems. It was designed and completed with the purpose to allow Flash applications to communicate directly with any MLS real estate servers in the states. Varying projects also required me to setup & manage various web servers including Windows IIS and Linux/Unix Apache stacks. As part of business I also hosted some client websites myself and was responsible for managing multiple servers running Plesk to manage domains & websites.
