A thousand times faster :S

And I must say that I'm impressed with your work for only being 18. I've always said there are some truly talented female programmers out there (I went to college with a few), and you've just proven my point again.

Thanks Ober, now only if my instructers thought the same thing lol :P

Mark Grainger, male, 26....

I remember this exact question being asked when doing Computer Studies in college. One response to 'why arent many women into computer programming?' was 'Have you ever tried to use a computer, hair straigteners and put your makeup on at the same time?'
A little unfair, mind, as I know for a fact that at least two of the 4 girls on my course have gone on to programming companies for a living, whereas only one male as far as I know has gone on to do programming/web design full time.

I started on a Spectrum typing in BASIC code from books and magazines, prob back in 86/87. Gave up totally in 98 after college as I was bored. Got Into web design only about a year and a half ago, picking up HTML and PHP at the same time, as I needed to make a company website instead of shelling out nearly £5000...
Happily unmarried, and the girlfriend only shares my enthusiasm for Web stuff when taking the p!ss out of my PHP/CSS/XHTML books.
"you have to keep pissing in the wind to learn how to keep your shoes dry..."

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!

Robert Wygle, 24, male...
Colorado, USA
I'm incharge of my companies art department/web materials. I'm loving doing it, but it can be a challenge to switch from right brain to left brain functions then doing it all over again.

Been working with HTML, CSS, Flash, and PHP (some I know better than others). Been programming with combinations of those three for about 3-4 years now. And yes... before you all accuse me of being a Newbie... I'll admit that I am. But I'm a newbie that is self taught. (with this site being the exception of being a teacher, lol)

I am a bit late dicovering this topic; In fact I only just came across this forum!

I have to admit, I have always been curious about the demographics of this site. One builds mental pictures of the other members and it's amazing how wrong one can be!

I used to have Toplay down as female (I think it was due the verbosity of his posts - no doubt I'll get into trouble for that ;-) on many levels)

Re Me - Barry Andrew, Male, 57, Northern Brit.

Wrote my first program using ALGOL at uni in 1968, paper tape input. Since then is was all punched cards (still have a stack in my desk draw - how sad is that?) until mid 70's. Worked as a Systems Analyst and Project Leader then in 1982 discovered home computers (BBC B) and then a 128K Mac when they first appeared in the UK in 1984. The only compiler I could get hold of then was BCPL but later moved on to C and C++. About the same time started using databases (dBase, FoxPro originally, but gave me a start with SQL). I took charge of PC development at my company in 1986 (VB, Delphi, Postscript - to drive printers).

About 6 years ago ago I had to teach myself HTML, Javascript, ASP then the company bought a "Cobalt Cube" loaded with PHP, Apache and MySQL and I was given the brief "See what you can do with that". So, taught myself PHP and started building the company's intranet and that's how I'm here.


If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.

Hi, my name is SA, I am 6 and a half years old and I am fluent in both binary and assembly. I'd also say I was somewhat proficient in Fortran, Lisp, COBOL and Pascal (inc. Turbo). So far this year, having already learnt the garden variety web languages such as XHTML, CSS and JavaScript, I have picked up PHP at an intermediate level and am progressing well. In my spare time, while not watching the Teletubbies on TV, I work at the R&D lab at Nvidia designing ICs for the next generation graphics solutions.

How is it even possible that you are 6.5 years old?

I'm 7 years old and have been doing Artificial Intelligence programming in C, C++, and LISP for nearly 8 years. My work consists of developing a neuro-networking simulator for a robot that can process natural language understanding in the English language. My work consists of using a huge open-database containing all the words, idoms, phrases, in real-time and utilizing data-mining and semantics search processing algorithm for a machine to interpret human languge phrases.

In my free-time I enjoy spending some time creating the new cutting-edge CPU architecture, based on massive parallel computing, neuro-network simulation, and hopefully Quantum Computing soon that will allow humans to stored their consciousness in a machine to live forever.
