Here's my list :=)
  • I began programming at school on Sharp PC-1251 pocket computers, in 1983.
  • I bought a casio PB-100 with the 1568 words memory extension (wow!) in 1985.
  • in 1986 I got my first real computer, a Sony HB75-F with 64KB+16KB of VRAM. I've learnt the real true Microsoft BASIC on it :)
  • in 1987 I got sick of basic, I've started some Z80 machine code but it was a bit tough, so I wrote a crude assembly in BASIC... ( I had exactly nil money to buy any programs)
  • in 1988 I did some TurboPascal at uni.
  • in 1989 I've got a Compaq Deskpro 386n with 2MB RAM, a 40MB hard drive and windows 3.0. I've done some x86 assembly with ... DEBUG :)
  • in 1991 I bought a portable Victor V86P (80C86, 640KB RAM) and programmed some stuff using GW-BASIC and QBASIC. It was a step back from the 386, but at least I could keep it with me and even run it on the road :)
  • in 1993 I've done some SCALA programming on an Amiga 1200 for a job. That was my very first computer-related job :)
  • in 1996 I had a Silicon graphics R5K Indy on my desk and I started programming Perl on it for some video automation. Why Perl ? Because the application examples were in Perl :)
    • update added the 1988 line I forgot...
