re: What are you "old enough to remember" in software development? VIEW POST

  • Writing silly apps in BASIC for the family Amstrad 464 CPC when I should have been playing outside with friends
  • Creating a GeoCities website with images created using CoolText and PaintShopPro, when I should have been writing documents in my IT classes at school
  • Discovering an early version of OpenSuse in the store room at school and wanting to try it out (the packaging promised that you couldn't get viruses because of the way that Linux worked, and I wanted to know what that was)
  • trying to convince friends that the millennium bug was nothing to be worried about
  • Writing apps for a Motorola 68k in a similar configuration that the Mega Drive/Genesis had, at collge (I'm from the UK, so that means from the age of 16 to 18)
  • Playing around with the, band new out, GameCube devkits at university
