This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The first 'program' I made was in BASIC with a pencil binary marking boxes on a card which could be run in the SARA computer in Amsterdam. But that's way back (when a computer was as big as a living room). Later on I learned (in order of appearance): MSX Basic, Z80 assembly, Turbo Pascal, C, C++, PHP and now I'm looking into Java.
