It may be considered a bit geeky, and it probably was at the time, but tracing back through our own personal programming histories threw up a mind boggling array of programming antics, on computers now so far removed from what we have today that they are considered antique and only available as niche purchases on the likes of eBay. Ranging from Basic on old BBC Model B’s, Vic 20’s and Spectrums to 68000 assembler on the Atari ST and Amiga, 8086 assembler on early PC’s, Pascal, COBOL, C and C++ on Mac’s, PC’s and various mobile devices and a huge variety of scripting languages for web and multimedia, we’ve pretty much done the lot!
Programming is an art form and artists adapt. You will be told an awful lot of utter drivel by consultants in suits who will bewilder you with lots of buzzwords and scary statements to try and make themselves look clever, when really they are masking the fact that they don’t know what they are doing. We don’t work like that. We just get on with it, and let’s be honest here, that’s what you’d want us to do.
