First computer was a Commodore Plus/4, first programming experience on a Amstrad CPC6128 running on BASIC 1.1 but fortunately, it didn’t last too long avoiding me to be mutilated for life as Edsger W. Dijkstra said:
It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students that have had a prior exposure to BASIC: as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration
First job in 97, mainly Java programming, then moved to the dark side with .Net in 2003 where the real mental mutilation started working with WebForms. It took me some years to open my eyes :-)
I’m now freelancer, just have a look at my website if you want to know some more :)
I’m co-organizing the amazing Newcrafts conference and also co-founder of the Nantes Software Crafters Meetup.
