I started writing RPG in '86. I wrote my first code for an employer in '79. I wrote my first program in college in '74 (good ol' FORTRAN IV). Stuff from the '60s is ancient, but I wouldn't call anything newer than that 'old'. I wrote some pretty decent stuff in the '80s. LOL

LOL! Yes, I suppose most of the code from the 80's is more like 88 or 89,
but still I was in elementary school then :-)
