Arch_Android (1989386) writes "Hello Slashdot! The last post on Computer Science curriculum got me thinking about my own, predicament, if you will. I'm 14 years old, and began programming when I was 11, in Python. Now, along the way, I've never really had any project to really "get into", so to speak. Mainly, I've been writing simple text editors, prime number calculators, chat servers, and other simple beginner projects. Now, I have a decent knowledge in Python and C, while I just need to learn some little syntactical things in Java and C++ (excepting STL. I can save that for later!). So basically, what I'm wondering is, where does an eager programmer go from here, and how did you really get into programming?"

  • I started in 1980 with BASIC on a z80-based CPU, then migrated from there to z80 assembly, which stood me in good stead for later years coding in x86 assembly. I currently code in x86, with the occasional foray into Delphi or FPC for rapid prototyping. I've never needed any other languages.
