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


BASIC, because it was, more or less, the only language available in home computer in 80's (yes, I am that old... I was a teenager then).

Actually, thinking twice, maybe it was FORTRAN, the language used at my school (they had a special course on programming using the data processing facilities in the school, it was... mumble, mumble... 1982). It was more or less the same time I bought a Sinclair Spectrum and starting working in BASIC, so it is difficult to say who was the real "first".

Oh, yes, even before that I had a programmable pocket computer TI-57 with room for (brace yourself!) 57 instructions! (Wow...) :-)

Now, almost 40 years later, I use Ada.
