|Growing up with decks of cards, then paper tape, then real time Z80 assembler with a debugger you had to write yourself gives you an appreciation of how much easier it all is these days, I guess.
And most of 'em don't use the truly excellent debugger they are given for free, or even know it exists.
When I think back to C dev for Z80: Brief editor, IAR compiler / linker (with home written assembler where needed), EPROM programmer, screwdriver, run, swear, back to Brief ... and today I get compiler errors while I type the code along with suggested code that actually helps. We've come a long way.
