I feel very lucky and privileged to have enjoyed my career. I'm celebrating today, as I try to do every year, but always just at my desk with no party and no bunting. But this is another multiple of 5, so I thought I'd celebrate a bit louder than before.
Today marks 45 years of computer programming for me. I started on the morning of June 30, 1971. I learned and was programming FORTRAN IV on an IBM 1401, using an old IBM 026 card punch (didn't get to the fancy 029 for a while) to make my decks. The summer class was about four to six weeks long and I learned a lot and was proud of what I was able to do when it was done.
I haven't stopped since.
A fun memory every year.
More recently, Ihave been pressing for a small adjustment to OSI that enables in effect UBL to operate directly on TCP/IP where my draft Federated Agile Collaborative Enterprise standard allows Software Defined Enterprises to transform another's architecture to meet its own evolving architecture needs in real time. As you know, the 15 minute demo is worth a thousand emails! Ummmm thank.... You.... For...sending me down the path....i think! Daidroos@gmail.com
