Marcus Müller
Founder LogicLink
Germany Germany
In the early 1980s I stumbled across a Zilog Z80 in the form of a ZX80 and found my programming passion. From Assembler and Basic to Pascal and Turbo Pascal, C, C++ and Java, Javascript and CSS after years of Visual Basic and SQL I ended up with C#, XAML, T-SQL and ASP.Net, coquetting with F#.

I graduated from University of Cologne in molecular biology combining bio science and computer engineering. Since 1996 I founded my own company working on Windows and web-based software for laboratories and other businesses with Microsoft technologies.

Paulo Zemek
Software Developer (Senior) Microsoft
United States United States
I started to program computers when I was 11 years old, as a hobbyist, programming in AMOS Basic and Blitz Basic for Amiga.
At 12 I had my first try with assembler, but it was too difficult at the time. Then, in the same year, I learned C and, after learning C, I was finally able to learn assembler (for Motorola 680x0).
Not sure, but probably between 12 and 13, I started to learn C++. I always programmed "in an object oriented way", but using function pointers instead of virtual methods.

At 15 I started to learn Pascal at school and to use Delphi. At 16 I started my first internship (using Delphi). At 18 I started to work professionally using C++ and since then I've developed my programming skills as a professional developer in C++ and C#, generally creating libraries that help other developers do their work easier, faster and with less errors.
