1980, 7 years old, Apple II with Integer BASIC

Our school district started an accelerated learning school called "Summit" in 1979. I was part of the pilot class for that program, which started in by first grade year. My first programming class was in the 2nd grade on the Apple II. We wrote our little programs using Integer BASIC. I was immediately hooked.

I later moved to a C=64, which was a revelation. Color codes and those cool keyboard symbols? That was the business back in the day.
