2⁴ years of programming

One of the dreams I always had since I was a child was to learn to program. On February 27th, 1997, after an ordinary middle school day, I was reading my Technical Education book. Looking through the pages, a topic caught my attention: “Developing with QBasic”. Sixteen (2⁴) years ago, aged 12, I discovered programming.

The first code I ever wrote was very similar to the following.

phrase$ = "Hello World!"
LOCATE 13,40
PRINT phrase$
