This is how I got started programming, 20 years ago, 1988:
Actually I started a few years earlier, but this is probably where I really got into writing code, and writing games. Â That’s a Sinclair ZX-Spectrum in a dK’tronics keyboard. Â Microdrive on the left. Â TV as a monitor. Â Sound sampler plugged in the back, plotter on the right. Â Cassette player (from before I got the microdrive). Â I still have that pink folder under the calculator. Â This is all on my desk in my room at Needham Hall, from when I was at UMIST (now Manchester University).
