Hi, I'm Al. I like to write useful software and give it away for free. I've written a book called "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" which is in print on Amazon (get the 2nd edition, not the other one) and available in full online at http://inventwithpython.com

I'm from Texas, currently living in San Francisco, and like to haunt coffeeshops and work from my laptop. I have a day job as a software developer (currently mostly Python and JavaScript), but always have a million side projects going on. My blog is at http://coffeeghost.net

Glad to join the forum!

It's great to see you posting here Al! Welcome  Kiss

Like many others, I learned to program as a young kid because I wanted to make my own games (the bible when i was learning was "Basic Computer Games" by David Ahl).. I've written about your book before on DC, and I think it would be a fantastic gift for a kid who wants to learn to program.

I'm from the beautiful little town of Belgrade, Maine USA.  I used to be a COBOL programmer!! I worked for the US Treasury, worked for a company that went around the US writing and installing Registry of Deeds systems, worked for a couple of banks (boring!!!), worked for WANG Labs in the manufacturing systems group and many more.  I've had a wonderful career but retired about 2 years ago. I found that getting older limited my learning capacity and I just couldn't get a handle on the new programming. I love this newsletter, but, to be perfectly honest, I have absolutely no idea about a lot of the stuff you kids talk about! So remember, when you write about new stuff, use the "old lady" factor so I don't feel so dumb!!  All you kids keep up the great work you're doing - you are our future!!

COBOL. Yeah!  And Pascal, Fortran, Snobol, punched cards & 11x15 inch fanfold paper!  I now have more processing power in my laptop then the entire Computer Centre had back then. And my file server has more grunt than what they took to the moon.

BTW, if you had shown Neil Armstrong a digital watch back then, he wouldn't have known what it was or how it worked.

Oh AussieRodney, do you ever bring back memories....  The computer used to take up an entire wall of a very good sized room.  And the cards - I couldn't tell you how many times I dropped a deck and it took me hours to get it back together again! And never mind the card jams!!  Then eventually we made the big move to disks. They were the size of a big tire and must have weighed about 40 pounds. Is was a wonderful adventure back then. So exciting - these "computer things". And to say you worked with them gave you instant Geek status! I could write anything in cobol - today I can't write a working SQL statement - especially if it has sub instructions. Do I miss it? Hell yea!! Would I ever go back? Can't. Just don't have the illogical thinking of today's computer languages. Cobol was cut and dried, it either worked or it didn't.

This site seems like a really great idea and I see that it has created quite a lot of interest and I wanna play too.

I'm not a coder but I sure like working with them.

As a veteran graphic artist I first found computers in 1980 when I migrated into typography. That progressed into mainframe systems that I could compose entire pages of ads and news. The vendor liked my style and hired me to travel, train, install and help evolve their mainly news centric system into a complete package for ad production and complete pagination. I spent 18 years with them, my favorite chore was being a liaison between users and engineers. My favorite things to do were icons, GUIs, dialog boxes, macros and lots and lots and lots of testing. I write a mean bug report (errr... sorry, that should say, "issue report" Wink ) with ALL the facts.

 There are some that are into hardware, some into software, but I like to say that I'm into wetware.

I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.
