I wrote my first code in 1977, in assembly, for a Z-80. These days I am slightly more modern, using Ruby, Javascript and some sort of Intel chip that goes much faster. I enjoy seeing how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Today's hottest code snippets are not actually all that different from code snippets written decades ago. Without history, without knowing the past, developers seem keen to repeat the errors of the past, but I am hopeful one day soon, that will change! In the meantime, I am learning from a lot of developers at this site, which is refreshing and maybe I can contribute to others with my experience.
