Thinking about becoming a programmer?

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

As a recovering programmer who cut his teeth on mark sense cards and punched tape, I'm amused by this rap young programmers - complete the jabs at diskettes and modems. As a young programmer, we didn't have YouTube to share our joy of programming, but we had plenty of paper tape, punched cards, and modem connected BBS networks. For kicks, we used to see how many computer operators we could fit inside the mainframe chassis or drop a scarifical stack of punched cards from a stressed out student. Those were the days.
