I started programming in the mid 80s, on hobby machines like the Commodore 64 (BASIC, Lisp and 6510 assembly) and the TSR-80 (BASIC, Fortran, Pascal and 8086 assembly.) Books and magazines borrowed from the library, conversations with other hobbyists, and dial-up bulletin boards were my source of information. I took some courses in college (RPG, C, and God help me, even COBOL) but the biggest help in learning programming was to wade hip-deep into code and splash about.
