Podcast 387: The first ten years of our programming lives
The home team shares their programming origin stories, from year one, when everyone was bitten by a radioactive microchip, all the way to the present, where we are all talking about code on a podcast.
This episode was inspired by Joma Tech’s review of his first ten years in coding.

Should you actually write out code on paper as some of us had to do? Maybe.

Hackathons helped Cassidy find her deeper love for coding, oh, and her husband too.the stack overflow podcast
the Transcript button for this podcast-387 seems to link to a broken destination (well, at 2021-10-26T15:30Z, at least)
précision: I am located in France
and I am talking about the “TRANSCRIPT” link on this page, under “Show notes”, and just above the tags
the link should be without the trailing “/” to work (at least for me). ie : https://the-stack-overflow-podcast.simplecast.com/episodes/the-first-ten-years-of-our-programming-lives/transcript instead of https://the-stack-overflow-podcast.simplecast.com/episodes/the-first-ten-years-of-our-programming-lives/transcript/
Good to hear in this podcast of people who might be in their 3rd (?) decade of programming. Hearing from those who are in their 4th and 5th decade of coding journey and *still* programming would also be interesting. How often have they integrated to black boxes? How has their ability changed? I left programming for 15 years because i felt i was only ever going to be as good as someone who had been coding for 3 years. I wanted to have a career where i could be much more knowledgable as I got older over the decades.
