About this site
Flashgamer.com is my private site and it’s about the things I like and play with at the moment. This means a lot of Flash and Flex stuff, but occasionally about other tech I like and use such as the ExpressionEngine CMS, iPhone/Mac and more.
About Jens Christian (aka Jensa)
Jens has been working with Flash since version 3 came out. Since then, he’s been an active member of the Flash community. He’s created more than a hundred Flash games (thus the name of this blog) but he also makes web/standalone applications, does workshops and other consulting.
In 1994, Jens co-founded Netron. Initially Netron only did presentations using Asymetrix Toolbook and later Macromedia Director. In 1999, Netron became the first Norwegian Flash consultancy, doing exclusively Flash related work. In May 2006 he left the company to go freelance, but Jens still enjoys working with Netron from time to time.
With the help of some good friends in the community, he maintains the site Flashmagazine.com. Since it’s start back in March 2000, it’s become a popular site with Flash Designers and Developers. Flashmagazine now features more than 1400 articles about the Flash Platform and the community around it. It’s still just a hobby though.
Some random facts about me:
- I’ve been playing with computers since I was 11 when my father bought a Sinclair ZX81. I got a C64 after that.
- I’m not a computer professional in terms of education, but I can brag about being a Certified Sound Engineer. I worked as an engineer/dj in commercial radio for a couple years, but I’ve barely used the audio part of my education since then.
- I’ve published two books about Flash (in Norwegian), but I don’t think I’ll ever write a book again. These days I prefer to spend my time on Flashmagazine and Open Source projects instead.
- I’m a family man. I’ve got two kids and a lovely wife and we live on the outskirts of Norway’s capitol Oslo
- I love skateboarding, but I suck at it. My current goal is to kickflip…
