    How's it going? You do any programming yourself?

    cout >> "Hello!" >> endl;

    You have the > symbols backwards.. It would be:

    cout << "Hello!" << endl;

    With me it was when our science classroom bought a Commodore PET in 1981. We learned as a class to write programs in BASIC, then worked as teams to write programs that demonstrated what we learned. In most cases one or two
    students did all the work, and the other team members goofed off. We'd all be
    tested individually, so paying attention was important.

    To me at the time, computers were magical. The idea that you could tell a computer what to do by writing and keying in code was also magical. it was like writing spells. We didn't get too technical in what all could be done
    in BASIC though. It was basically creating processes requiring input statements that would be used in making math programs, or you would enter a name, a noun, a verb, and some adjectives, and it will create a story where
    it fills in the blanks with the words you gave it. I wanted to learn more advanced skills such as variables and arrays to make the story programs more random, however my guess was the teacher hadn't read that far in the book
    yet.

    I never went much further in programming even though I had an Atari 400 then later a C-64. I would try to learn, but I probably could've learned more
    if I had learned flowcharting as it related to creating larger programs with multiple loops and subroutines.

    Now that I have a couple of Raspberry Pi's and a Rock64 sbc, I would like to learn Python so I can make use of the GPIO pins.

    me to programming.

    I started with Applesoft on an Apple ][, then Turbo Pascal on the same platform (with Z80 cards), and later Turbo Pascal on DOS. Even wrote a bit of Assembler on processors such as 8086 and 6809 loved the 6809)

    Then I largely quit, other than batch and Linux shell scripting, and a bit of PIC ASM. Did dabble in Java for a short period though.

    Hello. What brings you to programming?


    Microsoft Disk Extended Basic and then later Basic09 on the Coco 2 and Coco 3. Did a little in C and Java after and took Cobol in high school. I don't do much programming in my day job outside of some scripting.
    Good times though.

    I'm currently learning 6809 assembly on a TRS-80 (CoCo) emulator. It's pretty advanced features for an 8-bit cpu: two stacks, 16-bit registers, a multiply instruction, and best of all; a SEX instruction.

    ... Decimal points are always one place too far to the left.

    I did a little bit of 6809 ASM at university. That's one chip I really loved programming. Seemed very easy to work with, and one I think I could quickly get used to again.

    Depends what it is. ;)

    ... Decimal points are always one place too far to the left.

    That was one of things on my computing bucket list as a kid. I have the Coco-PI now and am thinking of trying it out at some point. It's nice that all the books (or the ones that matter I guess) are all available on PDF these days. -----------------------
