Amateur Computer Programming Experience
I used my dad's Commodore 64 to teach myself Commodore BASIC, which is a slight variation of the BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) programming language. Within the next two years, I also learned Apple BASIC, and then the original BASIC. The core languages were all about the same, but there were some commands and syntaxes that varied between versions.
In the late 1990's I taught myself Visual BASIC 6.0, but never really used it for anything.
I'm currently attending a web development boot camp through Johns Hopkins University, with the end goal of earning extra money outside of normal work hours as a freelance web developer.
