I was a facility engineer in charge of an office building in Washington DC back in the early 90's. We installed an energy management system and used a computer to interface with the hardware. About that time, I was getting very interested in knowing how to program and was going to computer shows which were very popular at the time. I put together my own 486 and got my hands on Visual Basic, that's how I got started.
