I'm a former hobbyist programmer (I used to rock the TRS-80!) and did a bit of fun stuff in Borland's Turbo Pascal. My crowning achievement was making a text-graphics version of Leland's Attaxx (arcade game), which was nearly unbeatable.
Fast forward 20 years (during which the only activities remotely like programming have been spreadsheet formulae) and now I'm interested in the iOS environment. It's almost like starting from scratch, since I'm a devoted "procedural" programmer, and Object-Oriented code is a maze to me. :-)
