I started programming as a hobby in 1985 on my 8-bit Atari computer. I programmed in BASIC and in assembly language until I upgraded to a 16-bit IBM compatible in 1988.
In 1989, I started programming in C using Turbo C++. IMHO, Turbo C/C++ was the best compiler available to the market for many years, until VC++ 4.0 came out.
I started using MFC with VC++ 4.0 in 1996, and I developed and sold an application called GameMenu95. It had limited success, and I retired the program in 1999.

I now perform contract work in a variety of operating systems mostly using C/C++.
I occasionally have contract work for Java applications and MS Access development.

My favorite language of choice is C++. I believe it has the best combination of flexibility, speed, and type safety.
I’ve used many compilers and IDE, to include (VC++7.0, 7.1, 6.0, GCC 2.x, 3.x, Turbo C/C++, Borland 5.x, Watcom, MinGW, DevC++, Eclipse….)
However, by far, my most favorite IDE is VC++6.0. Although this compiler has poor C++ compliance, it more then makes up for it by its outstanding interface and tools.

Coding is still my hobby, and I’m very fortunate in that I get paid good money to engage in my hobby!

Life is good!!! Smile | :)


If I really helped you save some bucks, I would like to ask you for something: Please donate some of these saved bucks (you decide) to the charity organization of your choice - or just help out somebody who is needier than you are......
Pass it on....... Smile | :)
