I am a programmer. I wrote, keypunched, debugged and ran my first program my freshman year in college in 1966. I had my first home computer in 1976 - MITS Altair 8800B. I have written code in a variety of languages on a variety of OS's for a variety computers. Most of my career has been involved in various aspects of manufacturing. I have been writing C# for about the last 6 years.
I participate in EE because I enjoy problem solving, I find it rewarding to help other programmers as I have been helped in the past, and because I learn so much doing it.
