The Beginning

I started programming soon after my family got our fist computer, a 486/33 DX. It all started when at about 13 years old, I discovered that DOS came with QBasic. So I bought some old books on BASIC and started teaching myself programming. My early attempts in BASIC didn’t lead to any finished products. My biggest undertaking, converting an Asterix chooses your own adventure book into a computer text adventure, ended when I discovered, through a letter to the publisher, that the rights to Asterix computer games had been secured by another company.

From QBasic I moved to Visual Basic. Then while attending high school I taught myself HTML, JavaScript, and PHP and set up own Apache webserver. Once I finished high school I went to university to learn more about computers.
