I began programming in Visual Basic at age 16, mainly because it offered an alternative to pulling boxes in the family warehouse business. Since then, I’ve programmed systems in a range of languages, from form applications with Microsoft’s C# and VB.NET, to web systems with PHP, and console applications with Python.
