An uncle gave me a Spectrum 128k. It begins a lifelong love of typing things into a magic box and getting it to do stuff.
I took a computer home from primary school. Excited, I connected it all up and created an animation of a monkey swinging through the jungle.
I learned the object orientated "Blitz Basic" and put together a Breakout clone.
I learned HTML and started making really crap websites, mostly using Frontpage.
I began my .net career by creating data driven applications for my manufacturing department. Some used barcode scanners!
I achieve my first "Microsoft Certified Professional" certificate in C#.NET. It's "signed" by Bill Gates!
I realised there was another kind of surfing which involved getting off the computer. My travels took me to Australia.
.net is where it's at. I dive deep into the Microsoft ecosystem.
The cloud opens up a new world of development possibilities. It's time to use these skills for world changing applications.
