Yeah, it is very similar to how I learned programming. In my days, the concept of unit tests didn't even exist.

It was a very old basic dialect and it didn't even support functions. So I had to find my way around with goto and label commands :(

No comparison to what is possible with a modern programming language. Still, you learned how to combine the basic elements to come up with a solution.
