The first programming language I learned was Algol-60. We didn’t have a full-screen IDE. We used punch cards and paper terminals to write our source code. That was in the late seventies.
I communicated with other developers using Fidonet and BBSes. Then came CompuServe. Wow, that opened the world for a lot of us.
Nowadays we simply google for any question we have, and we copy paste a lot of code from GitHub, CodeProject, SoureForge, CodeGuru or similar web sites. At least, I do. I am a big customer of all the source code that is available online.
It’s about time to pay back.
That’s this web site is intended for. And I am having fun making and maintaining this multilingual web site, of course 😉
By the way, my nickname in my current team at work is Papa Smurf, so that explains the picture.
