As a young teenager in the early 80s my Dad had a friend come over to show us an Atari 800. After seeing it connected to the TV and running a simple BASIC program that displayed my name on the screen, I was hooked.

That was in 1983, so I guess I can say I've been programming for 34 years! I've written programs in BASIC, Pascal, C, Scheme, Lisp, PowerBuilder, Java, C#, PL/SQL, Visual Basic, Xojo and probably others I'm forgetting.
