Looking back (Some of your first code)
« on: January 20, 2016, 08:02:50 PM »
So, I recently stumbled on my first real C project, back from high school. It is pretty bad. And I thought it would be fun to share with you guys and maybe get to see some of the first code you guys did in whatever capacity you can find. I also have code from the first major Lua project I did. Both were written around the same time.

C code:
The below code is for a master microcontroller that calculates game of life and sends the "game" field to another microcontroller that had a charlieplexed 8x7 led display that displayed it. A video of it in action can be found here
comments are translated from danish and I have commented on the comments in parentheses (pastebin link)

Heh... nice that you have that! I saved the executables of my Atari programs from the early 90s when I was sysopping on Compuserve, but even though I posted the source online I haven't ever found it again. I'm sure I'd cringe to see it again... but it's nice to run across an old post about my big hit, and I even found the whole package in case anyone has an old Atari ST laying around. :P

I had one particular project that I'd update whenever I started learning a new language.  I have it in VB (the first language that I started programming UIs in), Delphi, VB.NET (ick), C#.  I don't think I have the code for that anymore... but you've spurred me to look :)
