An Old Programmer

  • Studied mathematics and computer science at university in the 1980s.
  • Worked as a contractor/consultant, but mostly for different software product companies.
  • Programmed in many programming languages, some quite obscure. In later years mostly C, Ruby, and shell scripts.
  • Worked on all kinds of Unixes and Linuxes, mostly with server programming, databases, and other “back-end” software, rarely with GUI or web applications.
  • Managed to almost (but not quite) avoid Windows. Never liked it.
