re: What's your coding origin story? VIEW POST


Self-taught from QBasic on an old 286 back in 1993, and later from a Dummies Guide to C++, then Java, then once I had an early 90 MHz Pentium moved on to HTML/Javascript in 96/97. All while living in rural area, no internet until 97 and even then it was on an old copper wire line that couldn't do better than 1.4 kbps. Kinda I guess like the old "when I went to school... walked backwards and uphill both ways...", etc ;)

Edit: Just remembered that technically I first learned a programming language in 1986, grade 1 we were introduced to the LOGO language. Didn't have a computer at home though so while I actually do still remember it, I wouldn't have had a ton of practice:
