re: What was your first programming language and why? VIEW POST


It was QuickBasic, in my family's first computer, a PC 386.


I remember QuickBasic!
What got you interested in programming and are there any lessons from QuickBasic that you carry with you?


Hi Seth,
I was then 8 or 9 years old. The thing that motivated me was my uncle's example. He is a physics teacher, but knew stuff about programming. Back then, he had some stuff he programmed and it was very impressing, at least for a child. So I started looking in docs and made little programs.
I don't really remember much of that code, because three years later started diving in Java.

Thanks for your story, I'm always interested in how people get started and what their influences are. Thanks for sharing.
