in reply to I started with...:

... a copy of Programming in BASIC, The Time-Sharing Language by Mario V. Farina. I got to practice my new-found knowledge in my high school, which had a time-share arrangement with ACTS Computer's system. On a Teletype terminal with a paper tape reader. I think this was around 1974.

In college I worked in Pascal, Fortran, and CDC 65000 assembler, and did some self-study in C.

Those Were The Days.
