I was doing DOS batch scripting as a 12 year old. My dad wanted me to do something useful with a computer instead of playing games and got me a basic programming book. But as a teenager I couldn't understand it. My first real programming was in C++ at age 19 in college.

Yesterday at 2:32 pm EST.

I hacked into the Nazi Moon Base and implanted a monitoring virus I had wrote that leaks me information about the robot army they're building.

I'll be ready... robot Hitler. I'll be ready.

I do not believe I have written code yet. One day - hopefully before I pass from this life time - all of my pages of cast off lines, syntax fragments, imperfect mission critical machines, and broken logic will pave a path through the dark woods and up the mountain where I may quietly sit, on the weather worn precipice, to etch in the first line of code I will have ever written into the earthy peat with a gooseberry branch.

It was my first year of college, I was 18 and it was Java. I really sucked at it, I still do.

It was 7th grade for me. Wrote code for robots in LabVIEW. 8 years later, I'm interning with National Instruments, writing....LabVIEW. What a full circle that was.

13ish? On those TI 83 Plus calculators we had that did our algebra homework for us. They were stupid little apps, nothing really advanced or large. Mostly just loops and if statements.
