I started programming in the distant year 87. I was 13 years old. By the way, I'm indebted to this film "Star Wars". Not the Star Wars, to which you are accustomed on large screens, but those that were shot back in the 70's. The desire to bring the future closer, multiplied by the share of romance - all this brought me to the world of IT. With love and warmth, I remember the first computers on which I learned programming. Then they seemed to be something from a fantasy world. It seemed that the future was about to come. It's about the future, where there are robots, artificial intelligence. But now, I'm already 42 years old, but I'm still waiting ;)
This post is dedicated to the computer Agat-9. He was called the russian "Apple-II". This computer was surprisingly compatible with Apple's software. I remember him with love and trembling
