I grew up in a very poor family and was lucky that I had well-to-do neighbors. This allowed me to be exposed to my first TRS-80 computer which is when I started programming. I’ll never forget the day that I was “politely” chased out of CCS Computer Show/Demo in the parking lot of Starlight Shopping Plaza when I fired up GWBASIC and started writing code on the machines.
As I grew older I always remembered that day to wanted to help nurture, develop and encourage in anyway that I could, the talent and passion of young Trinidadians with an interest in programming (software engineering). This blog and this post in particular is one attempt to that achieve that end.
This isn’t anything that you couldn’t find YouTube, but I thought that I’d drop them all in a post for ya! They had some pretty great speakers. Very interesting stuff.
I hope this stimulates some thought and inspires some people.
