Before I got myself a computer, I spent a lot of time with my friends', typing in programs from computer magazines. I read a lot of books on computers and programming, and tried to understand their example programs.
Learned assembler on the ZX Spectrum, got fluent in Basic on the C=, learned Modula 2 on Amiga and finally C on Amiga and some Sun workstations. I did take some classes on Pascal programming in high-school, and in the Uni, we were taught Java and C++, but I consider myself self-taught.
