    I Love Programming

    It feels deeply cathartic. Like what I think people feel when they build things. I like building things too, but I am better at programming. I should program something now. It'll likely make me feel better.

    Currently Retired And Obsolete

    Started professionally April 28, 1969 although the first thing I did was take a course on the job in IBM Assembler. I had already taken COBOL before I was promoted. I would say most of the work I did in my first years was in Assembler although there was quite a bit of COBOL. It...

    I Used To Be

    I started with FORTRAN, mostly skipped COBOL, and wrote mostly PL/1 and assembler. “Back in the day” you still could exercise some creativity. Even C and C++ were fun to write. I picked up a few other languages along the way, and even wrote a couple of specialized...
