My experience (talked to people) is that no programmer learned programming from any teachers. (Ok, maybe I'm an exception, I learned a lot from three professors).

What year did you learn programming?

Back then there was no internet, so teachers were one of very few options.

Well, there were books and journals. That's how I learned Forth and Fortran and C and Pascal.

OTOH, we had a seminar, that's why I had learned SETL.

In what year did you write your first program?

Did you learn it from books/journals or from teachers?

In production, you mean? I learned it from the previous guy that worked on that code.

Not necessarily in production.
But in any case, what year was that?

I think I wrote my first program around 1988.

> I learned it from the previous guy that worked on that code.

So dedicated teachers were not critical for learning programming. I assume some teaches still helped to improve your skills.

1971

I wasn't even born then.

Sorry. I mean, you are lucky.

My kids are even luckier from that perspective. They're growing up with computers around them.

Sure! They'll have all the pokemons.
Dennis Gorelikdennisgorelik on July 16th, 2016 03:28 am (UTC)
Do you mean they would be so busy with Pokemons that they would never start programming?
