I have been coding for over 25 years.
Started with Apple II BASIC, then in college dabbled in all sorts of languages:
My career started with VAX BASIC and then went backwards with WANG MVP2200 BASIC!
From there, I transisitoned into mainframes, using mostly ADABAS/Natural and some COBOL. I was fully engulfed in mainframes for 15 years - TSO, JCL, syncsort, even subbing as an operator during special mass updates!
After 10 years in mainframes, I taught myself VB6. My next four jobs were a mixture of VB6 and mainframe.
My last job gave me some exposure to .NET, but since my VB6 was so good, I was left supporting the legacy system.
I left that job in 2010 to work for my wife and started to teach myself VB 2008. Which led to where I am now, working with VB 2010 and SQL 2012.
