in thread How to introduce 8 year olds to (Perl) programming?

Gee, when I was 11, I wrote a very basic password cracking program to break into a school computer (never ended up running it, but I wrote one - impressed the hell out of some of my friends at the time :-)

    I started writing terrible basic and qbasic code when I was 6, but didn't start actually programming til I was 16. You had computers at your school when you were 11?...lucky dog.

      We're talking Apple IIc computers :-) Maybe I was a bit older than 11, but thats what sticks in my mind at the moment. Also wrote a role-playing game in BASIC about that same time too. It did work. Though, I admit, I had help from my dad.

      You had qbasic when you were 6? Lucky dog. I did have computers at school when I was 11 but those were still Commodores, and we did logo on them (and played games of course).
