Discussion in 'Programming' started by SpocKirk, Feb 1, 2001.
I started programming in Basic on my Apple IIe. What about everyone else?
Started Applescript on my old PPC 5200CD. Then learned C++ and Realbasic on crappy computers at school.
Learned HTML and JAVA on my G3.
Apple II+ - Applesoft and integer basic.
Now it's PERL on my RS6k.
Apple II+ w/ basic and those pong paddles and by typing in code I converted from 'the big book of basic games'. Castle WOOOLfenstein! (that was later).
I know some BASIC and learned how to write DOS programs in C++. I taught myself HTML and am now learning Object Oriented C so I can write Coca apps.
I don't know alot about programing, i know a bit of C++ from reading books, and i did some little programs with that apple script thing(Stuff to help me re-align window......exchage between TC on starcraft and stuff heh) oh and I can do games on graphic caculator but i don't really know what kinda languge it is i just learn from observing and friends. In short, i am gonna need alottaa help from u ppl to get to know more about programing
I started my web site about 7 years ago on my dad's PowerMac 6100/66. Then I moved on to my mom's Performa 5215CD. Then on to my iMac (the first computer that I actually owned), then on to my G4 400 that I use now. With my website came familiarity with html code. To this day I still hate hand coding. I like using graphical editors with subtle hand coding to tweak things a bit.
I first programmed in Basic and C++ on these crappy PCs with Turbo buttons at my local Junior College.
Currently I'm learning PHP and MySQL. I like PHP a lot. If you know C++ and html then PHP is extremely easy.
using BASIC ... I have now moved up to Codewarrior for beginners, and am plugging away at learning to program JAVA....
I like hand coding in HTML, it gives me more control. What I usually do is WYSIWYG in Pagemill for tables and frames, and then use a hand coder to clean it up and do pictures and titles. WYSIWYG is too messy for people who want to see how you did something.
Re: Mac II
BTW, I got a message from Apple's Dev Depot this am, they're offering V2 of Codewarrior for beginners for $39.95 if you preorder. I don't have the link any more, unfortunately...
