Even though I am a super newbie, I relatively got familiar with computer and cording and web from an early age.
I always regret that I never consider seriously about learning about those when I was younger. Loving all kind of craft was my nature, however, I couldn't think programming is also a kind of craft, back then.
That is the reason I care so much about teaching kids code, especially for girls, in the first place.
I usually don't and really hate regret past. I didn't want there are more girls like me exist.
(I cried too much until right till here, so I will not say more about it.)
My dad's favourite repertory: "I had to bought hundreds of keyboards because you used to pee on those."
My dad was and is an electronics engineer. So, circuit boards always bring me a bit of nostalgia for me.
First Operating Systems
First-ever OS: MS-DOS
Even though I'm still not good at Linux, using command-lines were relatively easy for me.
When they talk about problems caused by MS-DOC's legacy, at MS Insider Dev tour's keynote about Windows Terminal, It was a bit tragically funny.
First GUI: Mac OS
There was a friend of mine who lived right next door to mine, though out from kindergarten to middle school. His dad was a captain of Antarctica exploration team.
My own dad used MS-DOS until the mid 90s, so my first experience with GUI was via my friend's dad. I'm not sure about the version, but I think it was either 6 or 7. I remember I used to play with a graphic tool on it.
First Microsoft Windows: 95
I had to double-check this with my dad before bought this sticker for my MacBook, since I wanted to have one I actually used.
BTW, Give me a recommendation for a white or metallic MacBook 13" cover that doesn't get dirty like mine, if there are any.
Honestly, I regret a bit that I decided to write this post, since I can't act as if I am an ignorant 18-year old girl any more. I dug up my own grave. This post is genuinely revealing my age.
However, Part 2 preview: My high school ex used to call me
"an elvish girl from VT(Virtual Terminal) village".
I know my experiences aren't close to standard, by all mean. so I really want to hear others.
