Reflecting on my programming history:

Basic, 8080/Z80 Assembly, Fortran, Pascal, C, C++, 8051 Assembly, Delphi, Perl, PHP, Python, Modern C++ and finally Rust.

That's over a total of 44 years from age 16 at Secondary School. I wonder if young people entering the field now will have the opportunity for such a rich experience?
