I was born happily on 1981.
I first laid my hand on the keyboard of an IBM-PC/XT arround 1989. Learned GW-Basic. Loved it. Over the years moved to QuickBasic, VisualBasic, C++. I was forced to learn Pascal in school.
When I finished school I got a job where I learned Java.
Joined the army, got injured, left the army.
Started learning perl because of a job opportunity. Loved it. Now I programm applications for my family's home network - in perl of course.
That's it. Well, I'm not David Copperfield, you know... :)
Incidentally, I also maintain a couple of perl modules:
Unfortunately I don't have much time for it now that I'm studying for a degree in machine engineering...
