    I started logowriter in 3rd grade, not seriously though, learned a little more in 4th, and by 5th grade we had functions, loops, if statements, the whole nine yards. The only thing that I'm not sure if we did was input. Well maybe we did, it's been a while.

    And yes I still contend that Logowriter is a language!!!! And for those of you who don't think so, I started Basic in 4th, and Pascal in 8th.

    Started on C at 15, left it for C++, just got an assembly book. :->

    Taken up a course in C++, as in Kent, UK, not many schools do courses purely on programming. I don't count VB as true programming. As it can't be used outside of Excel.

    Started C++ like a month ago. I spent about a year wandering through the procedural side of C++ thinking I knew "C++". Make sense?

    I'm 18 now, started programming when I was 4, doing BASIC on the Atari 65XE w/ tape recorder (Yes, one of THOSE ). Back then, a 512KB SIMM cost nearly 200! Learnt VB when I was 10. After finally getting to grips with it, I was disgusted by its rampant difficulty in dealing with the Windows API and started dabbling in C (In DOS, initially, didn't have any win32 libraries).

    Virtually stopped programming completely when I was 13, as it was messing with my head and my grades in school were fubar. Two years later I was happily reunited and amazed at how much better I understood what I was writing by simply taking a step back and analysing how it ticks.

    It's one relationship in my life that's still going strong
