I am 70 years old and have been programming since 1977. My first computer had no software. We had to write everything using a crude form of basic and a Zilog Z-80 compiler. It started as a hobby and then became a passion. I have used Basic, Cobol, Pascal, fortran, several compilers for machine code. Have used MS-Dos, TRS-dos, Unix, Windows and a few I can't remember. Most of my programming has been with databases.
If you have something new I can learn, please share and I will be happy to return the favor in any way I can. Over these past 31 years, many people have helped me learn. It is amazing that there are so many smart people willing to help and teach.
