    I started with TRs-80 Basic. Then was ecstatic when QuickBasic came along. Then moved on to C, C++, Visual Basic, Visual C.
    The oilfield paid a lot better back then so I wrote a few programs for some things that would make my job easier but pretty much concentrated on oilfield career.

    Yep. That's a very common progression. I started with a Sinclair ZX81. If I only had a dollar for every line of basic I wrote with that. Then, like you, QBasic, then PLM, then C, C++ ( did a LOT of MFC apps ), and now for the higher end stuff I use only C#. People may hate Microsoft, but their language/tools team is 2nd to none ... by a long shot.

    Starting out, I did a lot of embedded hardware design and about 20 years ago started shifting to firmware and Winapp devel only. I'd love to have some of the new PCB CAD apps under my belt, like Altium, but there's only so many years in one life. I make good money, so I can't complain. I hope my marbles stay in the bag because I don't ever want to retire. I like doing this too much.

    That's for sure. I have to keep reminding myself of that when I look at pug puppies for sale. I think my wife would kill me as she's the one who has to tend after them the most.

    My first experience with a computer, Monrobot 11, or XI, or eleven, I forget.

    He doesn't do any of that anymore. The program in the OP is accurate. Ship it.

    No no, and NO. GIT is only a few steps away from cargo culting. When I interview, anyone who brings up GIT is moved to the bottom of the roster.
