My first real programming task was in 1982 when we copied 4 pages of binary code from a magazine into my Commodore 64. We took turns calling out the 0s and 1s and typing them in. Those keys back then had a klack sound and feel to them. It was a space shooter game. We immediately saved it to the cassette drive, of course.
I was drawn to computer programming. Nothing would have stopped me from getting into it.
I love math, electronics, robotics, design, and all science, but programming takes up all my time.
