My journey through programming was like this:
I wonder if my memory will hold up as well as yours!
  • 1971 - FORTRAN - OK (had access to the Board of Education's IBM during the summer after 9th grade)
  • 1975 - BASIC - boring (1st year university)
  • 1976 - Pascal - good (2nd year)
  • 1976 - PDP-10 assembler - tedious but still remembered very fondly (2nd year)
  • 1977 - Simula - innovative (3rd year)
  • 1978 - LISP - bizarre yet interesting (4th year)
  • 1981 - Protel - advanced for its time (proprietary for large, embedded systems)
  • 1986 - Modula - better Pascal (on the Amiga)
  • 1996 - Protel-2 - excellent (OO extensions to Protel)
  • 2002 - C++ - powerful and daunting (at a start-up and ever since)
