When I was 12 years old, my father used to give me an allowance.
At one point I saved up 580.00 to purchase a Commodore 128 PC.
So I'm old school, and remember when things were basic.
I taught myself the basic programming skills I do Have.
In 2003 I recieved a certificate from CLN for Microcomputers.
At that time there were only $10 an hour jobs available.
I returned to the Army and continued being a diesel mechanic
