Computer programming has been one of my passions since I was a 11 years old. I'll never forget how excited I was when my parents bought me my first ColecoVision computer! At that time, computers were primarily tape driven.
The one I owned operated on two cassette tapes which needed one for storage and the other for the OS. Flipping through operator's manual, I discovered that my new computer was fully programmable! I'll never forget how excited I was when I saw my first program in action! That's all it took to get me hooked! I knew this is what I wanted to spend my life doing it.
