My father taught me to program.

He had Opinions, which is why I first learned a bit of Logo and then later, Pascal.

Basic was forbidden in our house, my impressionable young mind was not to be corrupted with line numbers, GOTOs and similar heresy.

Sadly, he lost control of the unruly teenager.

First I abused the C preprocessor in unspeakable ways. Then I put inline assembly in my Pascal programs. And then... the Internet, ircII and for years, Perl. 😱

If not for Python, I'd still be Lost.
