    Question How old are you?

    How old are you now and when did you start programming in C/C++?
    I'm 16 and I just started programming in C a few weeks ago (apart from a very simple Quake2-MOD I made when I was 14). I started programming (in BASIC) when I was 12.

    hmm

    I made some errors in the categories but since I can't edit the poll (I guess that's for security reasons - editing your own poll is a very dangerous thing to do! ), it'll just have to stay like this...

    Geez... I'm the oldest person so far.

    I'm 23, almost 24. I started with Pascal when I was 18, C at 19, VB at 22, and various other scripting/markup stuff along the way.

    25, I started programming with COBOL when I was 16 and shortly thereafter moved to C and other more interesting languages.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Dang, I want the one that says "Old enough to know better, young enough not to care." But since I don't... 23, picked up my first C book about 10 years ago. Started to really work on learning it about a year ago however. Before it was something I played with and never worried about trying to learn.

    I'm getting too old for this board. I have to go hang out in some comp.lang..... something.

    Hell, half of you people probably adhere to the hippie "trust no one over 30" mantra anyway so I will have outlived my welcome next year anyway. JEEZZZ!!!
