Discussion on: How old have you been when you started programming and what was your first project?

I started programming in 1976. I worked on a Model 33 Teletype dialed into an HP 2000 Timeshare System minicomputer, over a 110 baud acoustic coupler modem, which was part of the TIES system. The programming language was HP 2000A BASIC. The first program that I worked on (not that I created it, I added to it) was Oregon Trail. I was 10 years old, and would stay at school until 9pm every night until the janitors kicked me out to lock up.
