I can build a simple webpage from scratch.  But that's it.


 

Me too. But I use Dreamweaver Cool

I can probably write a few lines of C++ too, but that's it.

I used to know a lot of MF programming and Cobol. Dabbled with C and C++. Know java, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, etc. very well. Decent oracle knowledge and SQL skills. Very basic unix/linux commands.

Currently a web developer for a govt contractor.

….but I've worked on Linux and mainframes (Z/OS and MVS). I still know most of the IBM mainframe languages.

Sadly, my windows education is lacking and I need a lot of help to do anything in this convoluted Gates invention.

I'm also a dinosaur, having worked on DOS way back when it was a mainframe operating system, and Bill Gates was still in grade school.

…I have studied programming a long time ago… when only pascal cobol basic and a few other languages existed…

….Afterwards, I worked to computer sales industry for many many
years… so nothing to do with programming, just extremely familiar
with many programming terms and meanings due to my background.


 Cool! …….. Far Out! …….. Groovy!

I'm glad there are some other Old Farts out here!

I was a Mainframe (DOS, VS1, MVS, System/390) operator and Systems Programmer for 30 years. Like you I'm lost when it comes to Windows Internals, but I think the basic concepts are probably very similar.

My primary language was BAL (Basic Assembler Language) and I also often worked in actual machine language doing mods to the IBM code. Also dabbled in COBOL, but that was more for the Applications programmers.

I plan on starting a topic on Windows Internal Structure when I get time – basically a "Windows Internals For Dummies". I have a feeling a lot of the young'uns on this site could teach us old farts a few things!Wink (If they'd be willing)

I don't create websites and neither do I use java or C++.

 

Instead, I use… nothing. To create… nothing.

 

Yes I suck. I wish I can atleast learn how to edit CSS… :(
