My history as a programmer
My mum taught me to program when I was aged 8 or so, in BBC Basic on (you guessed it) a beeb, I then graduated onto programming in Assembler and some Pascal on the BBC and on my arc. During my university years I worked for a few start-ups doing some coding in Java including a web-server that customised content to the person viewing it in the days when that was pretty novel and high tech, and some work on electronic health records. I didn’t do any programming while I was working as a Strategy Consultant, but re-learnt when I went back to University for my PhD. My default language is ruby.
