What is your goal in learning to code?

In transition from the defense sector. I can convert old hardware & code to newer PC code. Finally getting on board with web development.

How much experience do you have with computers and/or coding?

Started with the MITS Altair. 35 years with computers. My code is still in aircraft and simulators. Started 1976 in high school with BASIC. Fortran, PL/M, C, VxWorks (RTOS) and Ada, some TCL GUI, some Perl & C++. Master's of EE. Serial/Parallel links, Digital and analog I/O. PC/Vax/Solaris(Unix)/Linux. Sonar BIT, VME systems. Wind River Systems field engineer. Enjoyed commanding Computer Generated Image Generator environmental screens from Windows VC6.
