I started programming in the 6th grade. Just kid stuff most nerdy kids of my generation were into. My father bought an IBM XT which he let me cut my teeth on.
Eventually, my parents bought me a Commodore 64 which was a dream come true. Of course, my “friends” had Tandy TRS-80s or Apples. I was fortunate enough to go to a school which had a computer class in the 7th grade, which is where I met my first girlfriend – helped her with her code on an Apple II – such a stud, I know. I moved on to Assembly, C, VB 3 thru 6, VB.NET, C#, ASP.NET, PHP, Java, and other languages I could go on to list in an effort to impress unnecessarily.
