I started programming in High school where i played with TurboPascal under Dos and
created an program similar with paintbrush .
My first real job was at wokadat.ro where i had first contact with Interbase/firebird and
Delphi (a real fast rad tool) . Firebird is quite powerful and impressed me with it's simplicity , also i learned about it's inner workings from printed documentation and playing with isql (command line tool).
One day i installed the redhat 6.0 on my workstation and started to learn Perl , After a while i went to Netsoft.ro where i worked with :firebird,perl,delphi,mysql . I wanted this
way to escape the Windows only world and to learn more about linux ,php and perl.
I had an short period and worked for an Microsoft's partner (infopulse.ro) where i learned
this cool language named C# and did some delphi , c++ programming (dcom,com+) and
javascript . On my second partition i had redhat installed and next to me was an solaris machine. Cygwin was an too helped me in that period.
