I've been a developer since I was 7. My elementary school teacher wheeled in Apple //e computers once a week and had us programming in basic. I've been programming ever since.
I've worked at Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, NASA, and Zillow, started a couple companies, and contracted at a variety of smaller or non-tech focused companies. I've been an instructor and was the primary technical reviewer of a tech book. Nothing that I say here is the opinion of my employer. In fact, the opinions are not even mine, they are those of my dog.
I've developed in over a dozen programming languages although have forgotten most of them.
