FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hello everyone, I'm an old developer newly retired. It's great to be part of a vibrant community where I can keep learning. I wrote my first program in the 1980's on a reel of ticker tape, and had to wait 2 days for the compiler report.

 

That's awesome. I was learning about programming in the 80's, and didn't play with ticker tape... when I was playing with Pascal on a college mainframe, they had punch cards laying around... but they weren't in use anymore.

At my first job playing with COBOL, I got to switch out disc packs on the company mini computer which was pretty cool.

Take care,
Jeff
