I started playing with a TK-85 in 1984 with my two brothers. At that time we used the computer only for playing games. We bought some game magazines, copied the BASIC code to play the games and save to cassette tapes. After some "copy & type" I learned some programming. Since then, I never stopped programming anymore.
I programmed on almost all programming languages: BASIC, C, Pascal, C++, Delphi, Perl, Objective-C, Python, PHP, ASP, Visual Basic, x86 Assembly, Java, ActionScript, Prolog, VBA, among others. C# and Ruby are, so far, missing, but it's a matter of time. I think it's too late to use COBOL, FORTRAN, LISP, ADA, Smalltalk, but we never know what life will present us.
