Wrote his first program in BASIC on a borrowed Amstrad CPC 464 to convince his parents to let him buy a computer. Mowed many lawns before he could afford one.
His first hard drive was a 5 Mo (double bay 5"1/4) and Pascal his trustworthy early companion. Has been dabbling in Python since 2003 and loving it!
Despite aspiring, as a teenager, to become an astrophysicist, does not use Python to take images of black holes but to modestly contribute to making markets efficient.
