Z80 processor, machine code for a few weeks. Nothing complex, just adding numbers and displaying them on a 8 segment display.

couple years later took a Pascal class then a C++ class.

outside of those it was necessity. I'm doing the same calculation repeatedly, I'll pull together a bit of code to automate the routine.

lately, my programming has been on PLCs

I have been all over the world for work. go here, fix that, why aren't you working on your day job? kind of travel.

have fun with that. by the time you've seen the sights all day, drank at the pub all night, and found a quiet place to sleep it off, you'll be doing it again.

my biggest problem was finding a balance. 8 to 10 hours onsite, then go back to the hotel for a drink to answer emails for a couple hours, make phone calls, eat, then home gets to work so they are emailing and needing this or that. you end up with another 9 hours with them trying to do your day job.

now sleep.
