Me as a kid

Remembering My Childhood Computers

Readers have asked me how I became a software engineer. As I started to write about that, I realized that the first thing I really want tell you about is the computers I had as a kid.

I was lucky enough to have been growing up when personal computers were new, and I had a mother with enough money to buy them for me (thanks, Mum).
