Default Re: What got everybody into Programming?

hmmm, I started programming in VB (version 3) it came on two floppy disks! (or was it three).

I liked the fact that I could actualy make things that were fun to use, I like being creative, however I found VB was very limited and could only be fully utalized for business type applcations.

and I used VBA (VB for applications) whilst doing my A level IT...

Since then I've used a program call mulitmedia builder (which is by media chance
thats good for creating media applications like CD players and MP players...

I got into VB 6 (and .net later) when I started working for a software company that writes applications in VB.
I have to admit VB is a piss poor language.

I got into C when I went to Uni and learned it, so I learned how to werite terminal applications for windows and Linux, and network applications (clients and sevrers)... I also learned C at uni for embedded devices, (like microchips not PDAs).
PHP was a natural progression from C.
as there are many more libraries available that are much easier to use.

I don'tthink there is any one single route to get into prgramming, or any one single best language (though my favorite happens to be C [not c++])

as far as I can see the best thing to get into prgramming is an editor, a compiler and inspiration...

Started programming when I was 14...

Got bored and followed my fathers ambition for porn in the 90's

He made a butt load of money so I continued his legacy after he moved on to other things...

Still programming away and making tons of money at it...

I was getting annoyed because there were no RPG games that had all the things I wanted, so I decided to learn a programming language.

A note on RPG games: the unknown games can turn out to be better than the big and well known ones, such as Evergrace.

But that's besides the point.

I got bored. Started of with Qbasic, then onto mIRC scripting. Later on I moved on with WinOOT, Java, Perl, C/C++, and a few other languages. More an object of boredom than anything.
