Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
I have been coding for over 25 years.

Started with Apple II BASIC, then in college dabbled in all sorts of languages:

COBOL
RPGII
Pascal
Fortran
GWBASIC

My career started with VAX BASIC and then went backwards with WANG MVP2200 BASIC!

From there, I transisitoned into mainframes, using mostly ADABAS/Natural and some COBOL. I was fully engulfed in mainframes for 15 years - TSO, JCL, syncsort, even subbing as an operator during special mass updates!

After 10 years in mainframes, I taught myself VB6. My next four jobs were a mixture of VB6 and mainframe.

My last job gave me some exposure to .NET, but since my VB6 was so good, I was left supporting the legacy system.

I left that job in 2010 to work for my wife and started to teach myself VB 2008. Which led to where I am now, working with VB 2010 and SQL 2012.

Off late he has made peace with the fact that he loves C# more than anything else but is still struck in legacy style of coding.
Rupam loves algorithm and prefers Image processing, Artificial Intelligence and Bio-medical Engineering over other technologies.

He is frustrated with his poor writing and "grammer" skills but happy that coding polishes these frustrations.
