When did you get into coding? How did you learn (book, course, ...)

Kindred

#22
I was coding Basic and Pascal when I was 15... (courses in HS)

When I started running WWIV BBS, I got the source code (in Turbo pascal originally, then it switched to C, and finally to C++) and so learned those languages...
(it was rather amusing, taking a C++ course in college. I had already disected WWIV which was about 50,000 lines of code... so the course was an easy A)

on the web, HTML is fairly basic (no pun intended) and didn't take that much to figure out... and the logic of javascript, php and perl is fairly consistant with what I know from C.  

Although I have several reference books and sites that I use occasionally, Mostly I have learned by doing.

Oh yes..   and I learned MS visual basic by playing around in Excel.

essentially, once you know one Object Oriented programming language, the other stuff is pretty much the same, even if the actual commands differ slightly.  It's the logic that is really what you need to know. :)



BTW: (on a completely unrelated note) for anyone who wants to meet me...   I will be at The Black Road (Marlboro, MA) at the end of June, at DexCon (East Brunswick, NJ) in July and at DragonCon (Atlanta, GA) in September.  :D

Anytime around Los Angeles, CA, PM me.

Next question, which MSCE do you hold (NT, 2000, 2003).

Kindred

Wow...  I haven't posted to this thread in years... :)

the funny thing is - not much has changed. I still work as a PM in IT (although for a different company)

I am drinking far more expensive alcohol these days....
XO Rums, more single malts, anejo tequilas and local craft beers

I'm going to DragonCon (Atlanta, GA) again this year...

Same, however I'm still yet to work in a bar :P

Is any one (except me) going to DragonCon?

Seriously?  With 300,000 members here, many of whom have embraced the awesomeness that is geekdom, and an expected 60,000+ attendees at DragonCon? no one else will even admit to going?

Tell you what...   if you come find me, I'll buy you a drink!
(hint: When I am not cruising the dealers' rooms, I'll be at the Hilton most of the time, playing DarkConfrontation)

It's not my fault that you're on the wrong side of the Atlantic :P.

Technically my e-visa would have been good to let me go to DragonCon but 1) I had to get back here to do other stuff and 2) I don't like Atlanta's airport, not after the last time when I had to be routed through there from Charlotte International, ugh that was a long and unpleasant evening.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

Kindred

Oh, the Atlanta Airport is a nightmare...  no question about that. The only airport I have been in which was worse was Philidelphia...

DCon is the only reason I would ever go there... and my goal is to be in and out (whether coming or going) in as little time as possible.

In previous years, I lucked out - my friend, who is a cop down there, parked right in the cops only zone and picked me up right outside the doors.

You ever fly through JFK? Or Dulles? I'd take ATL any day. It is huge, but I found my way around every time I have been there. If it is just a matter of size, O'Hare is a ******. I've had to run the length of it to catch my flight... that sucked.
