I took a C course in college before moving on to C++ which I am now currently studying in University. If I code in my own time i create game apps and somtimes device large projects. I have been activley coding since I was 12, when I took an interest in the BASIC language for the old Acorn systems in school. You could press F12 and type in BASIC and you could create very simple programs. Sort of like this one
10 PRINT "HELLO THIS IS BASIC"
20 "ENTER A NUMBER "
30 INPUT A$
40 PRINT "YOU ENTERED A$"
Nice to see how MS have evolved that into the visual Basic we see today.
