I've been programming for 35 years - started in machine language on the National Semiconductor SC/MP chip, moved via the 8080 to the Z80 - graduated through HP Rocky Mountain Basic and HPL - then to C and C++ and now C#.
I used (30 or so years ago when I worked for Hewlett Packard) to repair HP Oscilloscopes and Spectrum Analysers - for a while there I was the one repairing DC to daylight SpecAns in the Asia Pacific area.
Afterward I was the fourth team member added to the Australia Post EPOS project at Unisys Australia. We grew to become an A$400 million project. I wrote a few device drivers for the project under Microsoft OS/2 v 1.3 - did hardware qualification and was part of the rollout team dealing directly with the customer.
Born and bred in Melbourne Australia, now living in Scottsdale Arizona USA, became a US Citizen on September 29th, 2006.
I work for a medical insurance broker, learning how to create ASP.NET websites in VB.Net and C#. It's all good.
Oh, I'm also a Kentucky Colonel. http://www.kycolonels.org
C/C++ Programmer. OS of choice is any Win32 OS. Started working in the gaming industry, programming mainframe VOS OS and dealing with Slot machine serials comms protocols, creating test-tools and line monitoring software on W2K.
Moved on to working in a small software company that worked with electronic forms. Glad I spent most of my time there learning new technologies and increasing my programming skills. I wasn't going to learning anything from anyone there. Well, except the odd one person who is now a CPian.
Now working in a company that works with Security, Identity and Trust Solutions. Learning lots about encryption, signing, digital signatures, hashing and all sorts of new buzz words. It might as well be another language.
